Chicago Public Schools Reviews

What is it like working at Chicago Public Schools?

July 2017
Elementary School Teacher in Chicago:
The benefit package is a little expensive.
February 2019
Substitute Teacher, K-12:
Substitute teachers are treated like second class citizens by some of the school staff. The pay is really bad. I think they should pay more because Chicago is an expensive place to live. The cost of living is high.

"Let them eat cake!"
