To The Editor:
Responding to E.O. England’s letter in last week’s Catskill Mountain News, I am glad he is interested in improving our public education system. I’m wondering where he got his information.
I spent 27 years teaching in the public schools, and never, ever encountered any students who, in his words, could be considered, “a pottage of dregs, cretins or slack-jawed Neanderthal slugs.”
While he’s “pulling weeds” in his metaphorical garden, teachers will continue cultivating the strengths and interests of their students.
