Re: A Houston Reader Reports Reading Difficulties In Houston—And Comprehension Problems In The MediaA Former Texas Student
I attended Houston Independent School District schools, from 1978-1983. Back then, we had corporal punishment
, but that was done away with
in the 90s. When I was in school, you could have 40 kids per classroom and it would be as quiet as a church.
My friend's sister became a teacher in HISD—now the schools are all zoos, like all other public schools with large minority populations
. Last I spoke with her, every day was an ordeal.
