F.C. Schools Criticism Aimed At Decision to End Year Early
After reading Mr. Keith David Reeves’ April 23 response to my earlier letter in the News-Press, I wanted to clarify what I thought was already clear in my letter. Contrary to Mr. Reeves’ assertion, my criticism of Superintendent Noonan was never about his decision to close the Falls Church City school buildings and shift the students to home-based education. My criticism was with the superintendent’s decision to end the scheduled school year two weeks early — eliminating two full weeks of at-home lessons. Mr. Reeves assures us that this reduction in student education “will be made up for in the future.” I look forward to the school system’s plan to address this loss.
