I am not a teacher, but I’ve had a few good ones — very few. And Jon Greenberg sounds like the best [“Teacher’s transfer protested at board meeting,” NWThursday, June 6].To censure him or punish him for challenging students to be honest and think critically is uncalled for. What a travesty and what a way to ensure mediocrity.

I hope district Superintendent José Banda does the right thing by reinstating Greenberg and giving him a raise.

The Seattle Times already did the right thing by shining the light of day on this sordid affair.
