whatkindofbirdareyou asked: I live in Rockwall and we have to pay extremely high taxes. We just live in a simple 1980s rancher house. Anyways, RISD is cutting teachers from every performing art program (like, if there are two theater teachers, then there will be one and if there are three band teachers there will be two, ect.) and the classes are going to have 35+ students in them because they are not hiring any new teachers. I imagine this will be a problem because we're growing so fast out here.
I hate all educational/school budget cuts. Irving does pretty well avoiding this and still has about 20 students per teacher. I honestly feel that with the extremely high taxes that all property owning Texans pay on their property we should have more in the budget for schools and roads that are actually level without so many major cracks and potholes.
