Freelance Writer (Former Employee) says"researching about Hispanic community Cons: too long for a story to be publish"
Current Contractor - Teacher says"I have been working at Hattiesburg Public Schools for more than 3 years Cons: Disorganized admins from district down, waste of money, lack of discipline to the "bad" students, poor communication."
Former Employee - School Counselor says"I worked at Hattiesburg Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Horrible administration.... Too much scandal, too many underhanded incidents of framing people, unlawful termination, cover-ups and "throw a rock and hide your hands" going on... They downright mistreat people.

Just this year, a principal offered me a job, and the central office called to rescind the offer, despite the fact that I'm certified and many people working for the district aren't, and they still have many vacant teaching positions available that I qualify and am certified for..."
Current Employee - Teacher says"I have been working at Hattiesburg Public Schools full-time for more than 8 years Cons: We have a high turnover rate."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Hattiesburg Public Schools full-time for more than a year Cons: The school district has an alarmingly high turnover rate and individuals who would do well in higher positions are often overlooked. While the workload is often overwhelming and many administrators and individuals push their duties onto other people. The lack of discipline at CERTAIN schools can be attributed to the lack of proper leadership and students not being held accountable for their actions. Many issues are swept under the rug because of the bottom line "dollars.""
