To the editor:
After Raymond Tobey’s letter opposing the construction of a new school in the Bradford side of Haverhill, the only comment I had was shame on him.
I, too, am a lifelong resident of Haverhill and spent most of my earlier years in Haverhill. However, after marriage, we moved to Bradford around l965-1966. At that time, we had new school proposals for Haverhill such as Whittier, Concord and Consentino. I never read any opposition to the new “middle schools” because there wasn’t any.
Most intelligent, taxpaying residents realize two very important aspects of housing students in suitable educational institutions: Suitable class sizes allow teachers to prepare and complete full course studies. And a suitable environment and atmosphere for our children results in a better learning development.
Let us not worry about a few extra tax dollars. Let us worry that our children obtain a great education because our children will be the foundation of our country’s direction.
