To the editor: I am wondering about some of the information contained in that splashy headline story, “Parents upset with student treatment.”
In particular, the secondary headline on page three says, “Dankas: Teachers involved did not comment,” but then the article quotes five paragraphs’ worth of comment from the two teachers.
Mrs. Norris and Mrs. Gore did explain the circumstances involving the Dankas’ son, giving a reasonable and believable account of events.
School personnel are constrained by laws of confidentiality and cannot hold press conferences or even respond to press conference accusations outside of proper channels, such as a school board meeting.
Isn’t it unfair of you to imply that they would not comment, leading readers to believe that their actions were not defensible?
I would like readers to keep in mind that, for the most part, the article presented only one side of the story.
