RtI provides structure that dictates many of our decisions in education but I have never heard it used as justification for rude and insensitive comments.

Obtaining a degree requires money, hard work, and dedication. If you choose to measure your success in life by your degree, that's fine. But if you want to look down your nose at others if they haven't reached your level of success, don't be surprised if the cab driver takes you the long way around, the waitress spits in your food, the janitor takes days to change the lightbulb and the para moves like a snail.

Paramedics save lives every day. The fool who wants to wait for the person with the advanced degree could end up dead.

We can treat each other with respect and create a great learning environment for our students or we can be rude and make everyone miserable.
