District chairman fails to see point

To the Editor,

Re: Working together best for students, Letters, June 19.

I’m having trouble taking Jamie Brennan seriously  when he writes “Kip Wood is wrong when he suggests that the Nanaimo/Ladysmith board of education made cuts to programs and services in its 2012-13 operating budget.”

Wood said no such thing. What he did suggest was that the Nanaimo school board has failed to address a decade of cuts totalling $16 million.

I expect the chairman of the school board to have reasonable reading comprehension, and to be reasonably honest in argument.

We deserve that much.
