Re "Old age's new realities lead boomer's to delay retiring" (Page A1, Feb. 24):As a 30-year public high school teacher, I have to ask if the education of America's children is one of our most coveted endeavors.
As a social goal, are we well served by incorporating older, less energized and less technologically experienced people who have failed elsewhere in their career goals take over training our future generations?
Good luck just starting out at age 55 trying to control 200 teenagers with divergent backgrounds every day.
Also somebody better tell the former owner of a small construction company now seeking a teaching credential that he will not be eligible to receive more than 25 percent of all that he contributed to Social Security if he gets a CALSTER's retirement.
