2 years ago 14 teachers quit. Last year they had a sub for a math teacher and now 7 so far are bailing. There's a reason teachers are fleeing. Why can't such a small school district keep its teachers? Most have been there 2 or less years.
i attended rtc-e this year in 6th grade. I love the teachers they are always there for you. This year was pretty tough, because i had lots of friends in Houston and a really bigh class and i was going to get to go to middle school., but this is cooler cause i am going to the high school campus and cant wait.
I attended RT-C from start to finish. It is a small town atmosphere with small town teachers and small town kids. I didn't have to deal with drugs(I was never exposed to any drugs other than alcohol). I attended a major university upon graduating. Other than the culture shock of having 50-500 students in a class as opposed to 4-14 at RT-C, I had no trouble making the transition. I learned everything I needed, felt safe, and above all the teachers actually cared. You don't need an overeducated teacher to funnel information to you, you need someone who cares and knows what works in giving an education. I cannot fathom the idea of sending my children anywhere else.
