Letter: Leveling the playing field?

In response to Ron Makela’s letter in last week’s paper [“Teacher benefits: some clarifications”] and his reference to the sports metaphor he “might” have used (it’s been a long campaign): He was quoted in this newspaper twice using the inappropriate “level playing field” metaphor. I’m not going to apologize about his misinterpretation of the tone of my letter. I never used the term “anti-school,” but to be clear (and to make sure there are no further misinterpretation of “tone”), I would like to say one last thing. Ron Makela’s campaign against teacher compensation is opportunistic, shortsighted and anti-working-family.
