Re the story concerning the dismissal of teacher (John) Peloza's lawsuit against the Capistrano Unified School District ("Peloza Vows to Appeal Ruling," Jan. 18).

The school system--tax-supported--is a dictatorship, not a democracy. Through the current set of laws, the school commissions are mandated to employ teachers and to supervise these employees in the teaching and testing of various disciplines.
