Let readers decide


The March 9 article Scott: Florida has four of the nation’s top 10 high schools, shows how biased the Herald and Politifact.com are in regards to our political process. The article mentions that Gov. Scott cited Newsweek rankings of four high schools in Florida that are in the top 10 high schools in the country. Newsweek ranks not only high schools, but also graduate schools and universities and colleges once a year.

These rankings are very much anticipated and accepted. The rankings are questioned and obviously “have to be corrected,” with Herald-leaning “experts,” so the desired point can be made that Gov. Scott told “lies” again.

When my children went to school in the ’80s and early ’90s in Miami, Florida was dead last in education polls across the country, even with Democratic Gov. Lawton Chiles. I don’t remember the Herald going to any length in trying to improve the education system or going after Chiles at that time. I hope there are many other readers, on both sides of the spectrum, who are capable of building their own opinions.

  • Lessons from China

    Kudos to my congresswoman, U.S. Rep Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and Sen. Marco Rubio for sending their staffers to China. This should help open their eyes (and the eyes of their staffers) to what a real and effective policy toward Cuba should look like.

  • Corruption at corrections

    Randall Jordan-Amparo’s death in the hands of a system of a callous, corrupt crew in Florida’s corrections system is outrageous and unacceptable. I thank the Miami Herald for illuminating this travesty of justice.

  • FIU expansion has benefits

    Through the years, I have enjoyed the Youth Fair with my family. I have also been delighted at how much Florida International University has grown and flourished.
