I am not calling on teachers to be activists. Just saying that young teachers are not any more special than anyone else. Don't tell me it's a right for a teacher to live in a safe neighborhood while not for others. We agree nobody should have to live like that but just because one is a teacher doesn't give them special rights over others. We should never measure police response in days versus minutes and I don't have to become a police officer to change that. Maybe a politician but I think we can expect all neighborhoods to have a police presence and reasonable response. Not changing my profession over that belief.
Also assuming you are SO why would you drive from Cleveland to downtown? You can drive a lot of directions from Cleveland in less than an hour and hit a LOT of public and private school buildings along the way without ever going to downtown so not sure why one would spend 3 hours in the car. So yeah, teachers can choose to live elsewhere, they might just have to pay for it like everyone else.
