Re "School reformists have narrow view" (Letters, Dec. 26): It's disappointing to see George Sheridan write (and the Bee print) an ad hominem attack on Michelle Rhee and her education reform efforts. Her organization, StudentsFirst, does not attack teachers but rather attacks a system that protects status quo policies, such as tenure, protecting incompetent teachers or even retaining teachers who have committed crimes. The status quo is clearly not working for our children, and organizations like Rhee's StudentsFirst are improving education for all and keeping the priority with our students.
