  • Super has made ‘significant inroads’

    Contrary to the impression left by your editorial in “Thumbs,” Sept. 6, 2013, I believe that Mrs. (Sheryl) McNellis-Martinez has done a more than adequate job, considering the many problems she inherited from previous superintendents.

    The Post and Courier, Charleston, S.C., on the invisible department (Sept. 9):
    Introducing the State Department’s budget request earlier this year, Secretary of State John Kerry quoted Vice President Joe Biden as saying, “Don’t tell me what you value — show me your budget, and I’ll tell you what you value.”
