Letter to the Editor: Teachers are not disposable commodities

In seeking to respond to Supervisor Cindy Bailey's April 12 letter to the edito, "Teachers Don't Leave Because of Money," I am reminded of the conundrum of the mosquito in the nudist colony: I know what to do; I just don't know where to start.
