School lettergate, part 2


Now it seems that the offensive class project  letters were sent by a male New York City Social Studies teacher to one G.I. stationed just below the North Korean border who is shortly scheduled to go to Iraq. The New York City Board of Education is totally embarrassed (that they got caught and exposed). A Deputy Schools Chancelor, who has a nephew serving in Iraq, said she will contact the soldier personally. So now the City is having one of the people who cares somewhat try to make amends for one of the people who doesn't. There is — today — no talk of disciplining the teacher involved. I don't think there will be any more class letter projects like this one from New York, at least for a long while. But maybe I'm naive.
