I must truly congrastulate Mrs. Barbara Williamson, The Editor Of Letters IV The Edmonton Journal. Her focus IIday in allowing the aboriginal kids who were affected by the school in their district opening a year late was a masterstroke. Its not the family's, & administrators who are affected by the delay, but the students themselves who are on the ground, book learnin' every single day, Monday-Friday.
Mrs. Williamson is very adept at making the students feel like the stars of the column commentaries. They get their names & ages spelled right out. Plus they are put in one Super Section of the Letters Page II give their agony over the rough way in which their educational needs were put on hold.
Its Journalism At Its Finest,
