As the nation continues to mourn those killed in a violent elementary school shooting, teachers in classrooms across Texas are saying, ‘enough is enough.' Reports of a teacher shortage continue to dominate local and regional headlines. One Houston-area union leader put it best—as fresh faces of new teachers enter classrooms through the front door, more and more seasoned, veteran educators are starting to leave through the back door. Join Host Eddie Robinson as I SEE U presents our 50th episode and celebrates one full year of content with a provocative look at why hundreds of school teachers in the Lone Star State won't be returning to class next year. We speak candidly with University of Houston Professor, Dr. Duncan Klussmann, who has spent nearly 35 years in public education and helped transform a West Harris County school district of 35,000 students into one of the most successful districts in the region. Klussmann shares his unguarded perspective as it relates to how teacher salaries should be accurately measured and where the future of this profession is headed. I SEE U also welcomes former Houston Independent School District teacher, Terrilyn Batiste, who recently quit her job and now works as a staff member for Houston Public Media.
