Joanne Cecchi, Assistant Superintendent
New Kensington-Arnold School District
New Kensington, Penn.
You asked for readers' help, so here is my opinion. In your editor's letter, you say a new law would "recognize teachers and other professionals as just that, professionals. In turn, these teachers and administrators will point out what's wrong in education and help fix these problems."
I would add: "As an additional counter measure, the new law would recognize that students are the reason schools exist and make up more than 92 percent of the K-12 stakeholders. In turn, these students will paint out what's wrong in education and help fix these problems." Sometimes we forget the "reason for the season."
