Kudos to Brandon Thornton for his astute analysis of the recent District 87 Board meeting ("Concerned by actions of ‘concerned’," June 11). I witnessed this boorish and shameful behavior with a sense of alarm, but not surprise of those who confuse education with indoctrination. This is part of a larger and disturbing national trend of devaluing teachers by loudly proclaiming that the critical work of educators does not fit into their rigid dogma. In the words of a former strongman wannabe: sad.
