I am so impressed with your perseverance in the face of all the graceless and crude remarks. I have to say, I deeply appreciate your presentation of the facts and read you faithfully, frequently tweeting your comments to my followers (few). As a former teacher, now retired and writing the stories of what it's like to teach with no budget, crap for pay and a constant barrage of slander, I like to keep focused on what the unbridled plunder of our neighborhood schools does to our kids' future.
Keep up the good fight!
This is an argument that is ridiculously easy to resolve. Just look at their enrollement figures before criticizing Mr. Safire! Get a grip on the facts.
Most of these comments are so boilerplate. Are we sure they're done by real people. Surely, most have not been in the impoverished classrooms of Arizoana's schools where teachers bear the brunt of funding by using their own pitiful salaries to buy the basics--pens, pencils, markers, Kleenex...
I love your column for its truth and insight. Your comments on education are right on the money (literally). Keep writing. I tweet nearly everything you put out @ShirleyWill3 and am retired after 34 years in education. Thank you for keeping on!!!
OMG! Why didn't I ever think of that. Hmm. Guess it's not too late to start with the grandchildren, huh?
