Readers Write: Bravo for editorial on teaching truth

The Island Now


Bravo on your editorial “Truth in Teaching History” supporting the Board of Regents’ call for school districts to teach the American story with fuller coverage of the role of racism.

Regent Roger Tilles, Long Island’s representative on the Regents board, has pointed out that LI’s schools remain among the most segregated in the nation, declaring that “as a regent, if you don’t see the responsibility for equity to make sure others get the same chance at excellence, then you’re not doing your job.”
