Education info praised

TO THE EDITOR: The two articles in the Aug. 5 Press-Republican on opposition to standardized testing are very informative.

I was a certified teacher in three states and worked on a master’s in education at SUNY Plattsburgh, and I have had trouble getting explanations from anyone associated with the educational system. Your two articles were very, very helpful.

State and national policies are very troublesome, and now I can see why (between the lines).

I fully agree with what was said and with the sentiment expressed on the T-shirt.

 I lived with federal policy out of Boston regarding Job Corps and state policies implemented locally and would like to relate my experiences, with Kathryn Brown, and get involved as best I can.

 I am a retired U.S. Air Force captain and was a successful reading teacher with Job Corps, even though my degrees are in math, science and other technical areas.
