I just wanted to pass along my appreciation for the efforts of Eric Fry. In his quest to cover the story on school ranking, he interviewed me and used some of what I said in his article. Sometimes teachers are uncomfortable speaking with reporters because words easily become twisted and miscom- municated. The quality of Eric's article and his thorough coverage of the issue effectively communicate the complexity of the situation.
It is reassuring to have a reporter covering the schools who does his job in an accurate and professional way.
