I would like to publicly thank Alan Schorr for his dedication and hard work on the school board. Instead of attacking him personally for discussing the issue and providing objective, factual information, we should be recognizing his countless hours of unpaid service to the students and education system in Juneau. In any debate, points are based on the issues and facts, not on individuals. While you may not agree with his views, the personal assaults on Mr. Schorr are totally out of line and it saddens me to think that many of these assaults have come from people who call themselves teachers. Mr. Schorr serves as a role model for "community involvement" in Juneau and deserves to be treated with respect, regardless of your views on the issue.
