deedlebee Posted April 17, 2006 Report Share Posted April 17, 2006 Sometime within the next month or two, I'm hoping to interview with several of the school districts around town. I recently attended a job fair and talked to about 20 different districts. Other than brief conversations, the marketing packet they hand out, and the myriad of websites for each district, I have very little "real" information about the various districts. The state's rating system is not helpful, since it can widely misrepresent a district. Humble ISD was recently ranked unacceptable because the district failed to record their dropout rate correctly. Additionally, the rating system seems to have low academic standards anyway. Specifically, I'm wondering if the Houston crowd would help me out and give me their personal impressions of any school districts they've lived in or done business with. If available, I would like to learn about any impressions you have had with teachers or administration with regard to academic responsibility, teaching philosophies, general impression within the community, etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
