Posted by The Verge on Thursday, August 24, 2018 09:29:25 A group of students at the Lake City College in southern Texas are trying to make sure that the world knows about teachers in their classrooms.
The Lake City School District’s Center for Educating and Developing Teaching Educators (CEPT) has been trying to find ways to educate students about the teachers in its classrooms.
They are currently in talks with the US Department of Education, but a solution will be needed if teachers want to be able to take their classes to schools outside of the district.
“Our goal is to reach as many teachers as possible so that we can make sure our students have access to the best teacher possible,” said Melissa Leppold, Director of CEPT, in a statement.
Leppold says that teachers at the school are working to make their classrooms accessible for students.
“We’re doing outreach to our local schools, we’re working to get people to our schools, so we’re really working on educating students in our schools.”
The Lake Councilman says that the district’s students are often working in the heat and cold during the summer and the summer after school.
Leppolds spokesperson, David Johnson, says that it is very difficult for teachers to keep their classes safe during this time.
“We’re having a lot of teachers and students in these schools that are sick, or are stressed.
We’re also having people that are just really busy and have to work at all hours of the day,” Johnson said.
“If we were able to have a safe environment, if we could have safe classes, if there were things that could be done to make the schools safer, then that would make a huge difference.”
Students from the Lake Council have started a petition asking the district to provide teachers with more space.
They also want the district not to close their classrooms, because that is the way the district was funded for the past three years.
The district has offered to provide space for teachers but the students say they will not take it.
“The district’s money is already being spent, the district is already paying teachers to work in our classrooms,” said Leppsle.
“This is not fair.”
