Dear Editor:

It is not surprising that ideologues like the writer defaming Charter Schools put union desires and left-wing political correctness ahead of student needs (“No charter schools,” Letters, Feb. 6).

Contrary to his view, over 27,000 minority parents struggled this year to get their children into charter schools for the very same reasons that should concern us all. Charter schools provide a better education. Aren’t minority parents deserving of the same opportunities afforded to others? Is the writer so racist in his views that he would deny minority children the right to seek educational success?

Not until the power of the UFT is forever broken, and worthless principals like that benighted woman at PS 106 in Far Rockaway are fired for gross incompetence, will public schools be fit places for learning.
