NFA fixation, suggests Day news is lacking

News for the Day articles must be disappearing. During the past week the paper has published several that have implemented stories describing the poor image criteria of NFA concerning a student sex incident. The Day’s, “Norwich Board of Education to discuss NFA investigation Tuesday,” (Nov. 30), on the front page, editorial page, “NFA officials sought to protect NFA, not its students,” (Nov. 30) and even the sports page, “NFA protected its image before its students, which is reprehensible,” didn’t know that high school sports was that kind of activity.

School education is far more complex than any of the stories presented. NFA’s Head of School David Klein, in his letter, so stated that students’ education is the most important problem to be understood at any school function and is under control by the school and staff. The current problem is under police and staff evaluation and surely will be addressed and corrected.

The image of NFA has not been poorly influenced by the continued reporting efforts found in the paper stating the same subjects and not subject to school education, nor with parents to better understand their children’s activities. NFA is still one of the finest institutions for any student to attend and be one of the proud graduates. Back to the news, collusion!

Lingering anger over Vietnam pushed politics far left

This theory is based on 20 years of war in Vietnam (1955 to 1975). The draft did not include college students until they graduated. As the war progressed, students began to agitate against the war: they didn’t want to be drafted on graduation. The above were serious...

All this time off for employees hurts small businesses, eliminates good jobs

Connecticut recently passed a law guaranteeing paid family and medical leave for up to 12 weeks at full pay. Someone needs to explain why every employee who gets a paycheck will pay an additional tax for this benefit whether they use it or not, except for government or municipal employees who...
