To the editor:
Your editorial (March 31) on the New Hampshire Timberlane Regional School District tells me that little has changed there since 1973-1975 school years when I was the chairperson of the English Department. I served under Principal Bob Burke during 1973-74. He was a much beloved principal who also coached the outstanding wrestling team.
The teachers and student body were shocked when he was abruptly fired at the end of that school year. He was replaced by a man who was a close friend of the superintendent of schools. The school committee approved this change.
I and my staff of nine English teachers worked under this new principal for one year. At the end of the 1974-75 school year, I resigned along with four other English teachers. We were all glad to leave teaching at Timberlane.
I think our actions speak for themselves. It seems that things have not changed much in the last 37 years.
