    The reason Memphis City has horrible scores is because of the
    environment. You can only do so much with students whose main
    concern is staying alive and being safe. In case you haven't heard,
    Memphis is a high crime, high gang area. Also, there is not a lot
    of parental support at home as there probably is in Williamson
    County. These teachers get paid more because they get hazard pay.
    Their lives are in danger every day when they go to work. I
    guarantee they are not there sitting on their thumbs not working.
    To teach in a city like that, one would have to be truly dedicated
    to the profession. I know teachers there who pick their students up
    and take them home. In addition, some of the schools work 6 days
    per week. Don't judge if you don't know what you are talking about!
    By the way, I am a teacher in Hamilton County, and have never lived
    in either Memphis or Williamson County, but I will definitely
    defend those Memphis teachers. I would do the same for Williamson
    County teachers if they were being bashed.
