Robert Scheer's article (July 10), "Old Schools Survive and Thrive," is the finest piece of writing that I have had the pleasure of reading in many years.
The message contained in the article, that the inner-city schools can provide a meaningful educational opportunity through the efforts of dedicated educators, is as true for California as it is for New York. The consequences of inadequate funding for schools are as painful in California as they are in New York.
This article should be required reading for all of our legislators. I hope that you send a copy to each of them.
