[Susan notes: Here's a letter to editor in support of brave teachers in Tacoma. We hope lots of people will write.]

To the editor

The teachers of Lister School have joined the list of Heroes of the Testing Wars. They are to be celebrated for their courage in resisting

the bribes and bullying of the Reading Fist and No Corporation Left Behind. They make me proud to be an educator. Three cheers for Lister School!
