LIST MISSING ONE BIG CATEGORY OF HERO
Ann McFeatters was remiss in her omission of educators when she named people who work in a number of occupations as the “real heroes … who make the country work.” (Nov. 22, 21A, “Give thanks for the great things about America”)
Because educators perform their “sometimes thankless jobs,” the heroes whom she chose to list had the foundations to achieve and grow.
In fact, free public education has been a bulwark of the democracy and national cohesion. We need to rally in support with praise and professional wages for these heroes: educators.
