Sid Thompson

April 11, 1993

It was with enthusiasm that I read your editorial "The Best Might Already Be in the Job" (April 1) regarding Sid Thompson, interim superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District. I can only wish that your endorsement for Thompson as permanent superintendent had been stronger.

Thompson, an LAUSD veteran, has ably administered the bureaucracy for the past eight months during times of crises that are unparalleled. What better demonstration of qualifications does the board need in selecting a superintendent than Thompson, who has proven himself to be so tenacious under such demanding circumstances?

Thompson's qualifications not only speak for themselves but they far outweigh any other's because of his broad base of experience within the LAUSD. It is this type of job selection process that we should be modeling for our children.
