Arrest dead girl’s bullies

 

Re the Oct. 16 article Florida bullying case: Girls aged 12 and 14 charged: Kids go to school to learn, not to be bullied. The 14-year-old girl who bullied 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick was wrong and should be charged as an adult. The other girls involved in the bullying should all be arrested and face some type of consequence. No person or group of people is better than anyone else, and no parent should lose a child because someone bullies or harasses her. School districts should send representatives to schools to teach the students about the consequences of bullying and cyber bullying.

    Miami Dade College has critical unmet financial needs

    The recent exchange of words between the president of Miami Dade College and some members of the Dade Legislative Delegation was unfortunate, but it has focused our community’s attention on the critical unmet financial needs of MDC. I’m confident that our legislative leaders will rise above the fray and do what is right for our community.

  • Miami High must improve its scores

    Re the April 11 article, Miami High restored as resplendent castle of learning: I find it outrageous that $55 million was spent on remodeling Miami High, making it look like a castle in Spain, yet the school has a dismal academic performance. State figures show that only 39 percent of Miami High students read at grade level! Math and science is not much better. Perhaps they should have spent some of the remodeling cash to help students succeed academically.

  • Driving etiquette

    I’ve long felt that teaching “defensive driving,” however well intended, was a poor choice of words. Much better that we teach “cooperative driving,” which seems in line with what Tom Swick suggests.
