    I am commenting on the Killeen ISD having teacher positions available. I and several of my class mates at ACT Central Texas completed our classwork a few years ago. I was told by the Texas Workforce Center that there was a teacher shortage and wiht additional training I could get a job in that area easier and faster than in my degree area of accounting. I completed all of the necessary requirements, I was a Substitute Teacher in the district for three years, and I was highly recommended by many of the staff. I am still unemployed along with a former staff sargent of the US Army. I am sure that many others have just given up on teaching. I attended two interviews, but was not chosen to teach. My training came at great expense to me, and I find it offensive. They should hire us or quit with the false advertising. Thanks for listening. Regina

    Tell the whole story, not just the one Workforce Solutions and the Chamber of Commerce want put out there. Or the one the judgmental, conservative, center texas population wants to hear. You know the ones who "pulled themselves up by their bootstraps". At least they had boots. So many of the folks who want to work can't because they don't have the Master's degree required to be an adjunct professor or are a pharmacist or the teacher certification (thousands of dollars). They don't have the boots, let alone the boot straps. The establishment talking heads have the voice but the real people have no voice.
