To the editor:
I attended K-12 in Lawrence public scools. I had a lot of fine teachers through the years and some that I thought were not. I walked into sophomore biology class in the fall of 1985 and met one of the finest teachers in Lawrence public school history: Stan Roth.
He may have called you a bonehead or something to that extent from time to time, but he always had a smile on his face. I found that he was always there for the students that had questions or needed help. He probably had some of the harder projects that I completed at LHS and I didn't have that good of grades in his class because it was always challenging.
I would have to say this was one of the worst decisions that Lawrence public schools has made in the last few years and there have been a lot of them. I think we should think about our decisions a little more prior to ourselves looking foolish.
