Feedback: Don't report school dogma

Your staff member writes political dogma repeated by school boards almost yearly. Find fault in a school structure — leaks in the ceiling — and decry the condition.

Fix it! All buildings need daily fixing. How gullible does the writer think voters of Coupeville are? Schools are valuable assets, needing care and not criticism.

I hope students do not read the Whidbey News-Times and believe such provocation concerning their school. Given such misrepresentation, we will have them believing they can’t learn, because the walls have holes in them or need patching.

I recently visited a Durham, N.H., award-winning school that was 300 years old. It’s time we really look at the product, isn’t it.
