Letters to the Editor...
Some of our best teachers are business
people that have come to teaching as a
second career. My feeling is they were
meant to be teachers all along. Most knew
it but wanted to make some money first.
Recruiting from business and industry would
solve the teacher shortage, but though these
people have plenty to offer I don't see it
as a fix for test scores or raising
