Senators, Do What the People Want

Dear Source:

Dear Senators: I am a retired teacher, 30 years experience in dysfunctional school district in stateside US with bureaucracy and administrative level problems similar to those in the VI. I support Dr. Spampinato's goals, and her openness to collaboration. I support Gov. deJongh's choice…because he has supported St. John, and LISTENED to us! I hope Sen. Hill will continue to take the same interest in education that he succinctly identified and summarized in a previous article in the Tradewinds.
I am sending this to you as a group request, but I hope you will follow the mandate of the people who want change in our schools, and not do what your 'conscience' tells you to do, but what the public which elected you to represent them would like you to do in their stead.
