This school education system needs some changing. As a student there was many changes that made no sense and messed up any of my fellow classmates schedule and future careers. The teachers take their time to adjust a problem in which the students bring upon the table. The faculties have fantasies for the whole student body, on top of that, expect us to fulfill them to make them look good upon other districts. Little did they know that they blindly ignore what we want for change towards our school and other schools. Our education is fairly behind compared to other districts that I meet. They sometimes fail to see what students and parents want and only are committed to what they desire. Besides this, this district is socially strong and culturally diverse.

Growing up as a a product of two SAISD employees I already new the teachers and staff that it was comprised of were excellent, not because my parents said they were, but because I witnessed firsthand through athletic events and academic events that I was taken to when I was younger just how dedicated teachers were to their students on helping them learn and achieve greatness. Such dedication seemed surreal as a younger child, but after seeing all the hours my dad put in as a band director just to ensure the success of his students and the hours my mom put in as a math teacher to guarantee that her students were receiving the best education possible with the resources she had, it just had to be true. It was not until I started school that these beliefs were validated and justified by the dedication of my own teachers. Although, as great as these teachers can be, they can only work so much with what they have, and that is the problem, that is what has to be changed.
Our school district gets neglected when it comes to funds and support from the surrounding neighborhoods of our schools. We don't get the proper education as we would get if we went to a northside school, meaning there is no preparation when it comes time to go to college. A lot of our Dual Credit teachers get thrown in the class to teach , yet doubt our greatness, and it rubs off onto the learning process because we aren't taught with full greatness as we would with someone who loved their job and wanted to impact students lives. Do not get me wrong though we have plenty of staff that put 110% into their job and want to fill students with motivation and push them to do great but its a handful. We could do better by getting more support from the surrounding areas and to rebuild our schools.
