To the Editor:
I laughed out loud when I read Chairman McNamara’s addressing the problem of our tragic statewide public education system. In reality, sorrow and anger were the true reactions.
The chairman of the Democratic party in Rhode Island has been a member of the legislature for nearly a quarter of a century, yet he insists on continuing to insult the intelligence of the citizens of Warwick and our state that he and “the Party” have a “new” remedy for properly educating our young.
McNamara’s Democrat party has ruled this state for nearly a century. They alone have been given the authority and responsibility for generations to educate our children and history will judge their legacy to be a dismal failure.
Please, Mr. Chairman, after all these years in Rhode Island’s version of the POLITBURO, as the late Lee Iacocca once opined, lead, follow, or get out of the way. You have woefully proven you cannot accomplish the first, so choose to follow or, preferably, get out of the way. Our children have suffered enough.
