News Journal School Board Election article

In todays News Journal there was an article titled “Elections to guide schools’ futures” This type of article was new this year and was meant to give the public more information about the upcoming May 8th elections, but the article contained very little information. Now there is a fine print link off to the side which was to take the reader to a more detailed report but that link http://www.delawareonline.com/schoolboard goes to no where at 11am Sunday morning. I have submitted a letter to the editor about my dissappointment with the article and have copied it here.
“Sirs;
First I was more then disappointed with your attempt at posting information about the upcoming school board elections in the Sunday News Journal on 22-Apr-2012. Your article did not even mention half of the questions that we were asked in the survey, and you posted some of that information out of context. If the public is to make an informed decision about what is best for the future of education in Delaware I do believe they deserve the most complete and transparent reporting of the issues. Lastly, on a personal note my name is not “Greenwood” which is what your abbreviated article called me in the second sentence for Milford.

Gary Wolfe
Milford board of Education candidate.
