Public education: A more accurate view of the system

Finally, there is something in the newspaper that is candid toward public education [“The myth about public schools,” Opinion, Sept. 21]. For the last 15 years or so, private companies and citizens have tried to dismantle and modify education using skewed statistics backed by financial agendas. It’s about time the truth is told, and thank you, columnist Catherine Rampell, for the realistic look at public education.

I taught at public schools for 34 years, and I have recently retired. In those years I never experienced the negative characteristics attributed to public education by those numerous naysayers. All I saw was the delivery of a quality education to all by dedicated, hardworking teachers.

And if the state of Washington ever decides to fully fund education, our educational system may improve even more.

Roger Wong, Renton
