To the Editor:

Mr. DiSimoni wrote about the lack of accountability of our educators in the public school system (Letters, April 8).

Doesn’t he realize they are highly skilled educators ( that is pronounced edge-uh-kay-turs). They teach kids to correctly pronounce the names of the months (Jan-u-wary, Feb-u-wary, etc.), universities (Nor-tur Dame), etc.

The results are to be heard on television and radio.

What I can’t understand is why do our large corporations continually hire engineers, mathematicians and scientists from countries that do not have a good school system like we do?

They don’t even know the correct pro-nun-see-a-shun of our words.

The US doesn't rank 14th in literacy for nothing.


These so called educators who routine practice educational malpractice in our government school monopoly, screamed like stuck pigs over the A to F rating system imposed on the schools. How dare we expect competence from our pseudo educators. Ironically, these same so called educators impose an A to F grading system on their students. Hypocrisy anyone?

Mr. Mitchell's sarcasm (pronounced "SAR-KAZ-UM") is palpable (pronounced "PAL-PUH-BULL.")
