Letter to the editor
Sticking up for old-fashioned school

April 06, 2011

Dear Editor,

Linda Grogan seems really offended at my suggestion that students can learn in large classes ("Students different now, reader says," March 30).

She first claims that classroom content is different now. We studied English, literature, mathematics, science, history, civics and, since it was a Catholic school, religion.

This was the generation that put men on the moon; obviously, our education was not inferior.

If we segregated students by ability and isolated the troublemakers, everyone would learn more and the education system would cost less.
