Salomon Brothers is no training ground

Re "What's at stake? Insiders know" (Dan Morain, May 25): It doesn't take an insider to spot the mistakes in Morain's article about the campaign for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Marshall Tuck didn't go into education rather than working on Wall Street. He went into education because he worked on Wall Street.

After business school, Tuck didn't head off to make a difference in education, but to make money in high finance- first for Mitt Romney's Bain & Co. and then at Salomon Brothers.

With no credential or training as a teacher, Tuck's business background was what made his move into education possible. After all, he started as CFO of a corporate-backed charter school chain.

It's easy to understand why Tuck would want to mislead people about his Wall Street past and allegiance to the school privatization industry.
