LIST MISS­ING ONE BIG CAT­E­GORY OF HERO

Star-Telegram - - Opinion -

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.
