To the editor
After 35 years as a public school teacher, I can say that the only "experts" never consulted about the school system's problems are teachers. Yet opinions like Sy Fliegel's are given full voice ("Fix the Teachers' Contract," Op-Ed, April 17). He should know that all teachers in public schools face "challenging assignments," not only those in "hard-to-staff" schools or those who are math and science teachers.
