Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to complain about an article in last Monday newspaper, ”Schools fail low income children”. As the head teacher of one of the largest juniors high schools in the city, I fell strongly that the article does not describe our school.

My school has children from many different economic background, but a large percentage come from lower-income families. Nevertheless, our test show that the children do well and benefit from the excellent works our teacher do. Last year our school moved from 24th to 5th place according to the official assessment by the state government. This is clearly not the “failure” that the article suggest.

I would strongly recommend that more careful research should be conducted in the future so that your newspaper will more realistically describe the true situation in our schools.

Your sincerely,
Juan Gonzales
