To the editor

So Chancellor Joel I. Klein sent a “coded message” to affluent parents “unwittingly”? Get real! I have a few ideas about why Mr. Klein will allow certain schools “to run themselves,’’ one of which is surely to allow those schools to continue to attract affluent families. That is calculation, not naďveté.
