Stephanie. Thank you for the response. Yes, this helps a lot.
My wife has relatives in Louisville and we are considering a move
from California to Louisville because of the cost of living in
California. My wife likes the Clifton area (she took a drive
through on a recent trip), what is you opinion of it? As far as
the high schools, I understand Louisville hires teachers and then
places them where the need is greatest. Do I need to be concerned
about my safety while on the job in the inner city schools? Mind
you, I am a city person and have been around mildly "exciting"
situations before, but I'm just trying to get an idea of how the
schools match up in Louisville to Chicago?
