3. I teach in a turn-around district. They're not kidding.

The high school used to be Class B years ago before massive job losses in town (small town lost over 6000 jobs 7 years ago and has been clinging to life ever since), and now we're a low-level Class D school. We desperately need to get the students back who've left for other area districts, and in all reality, we're the better high school by a long shot. That's not what people think, though, so we keep losing students.

We've already made cuts and are making more. It's getting crazy.
