I write in response to Richard Sabine’s guest column (Feb. 15). He may think he knows what he is talking about, but he has no clue what is causing public schools to “fail” students, and no idea how to fix it. He cites no research to validate any of his arguments.

Here is what research says about producing successful schools and students: small class size, competitive teacher salaries and support from administrators and parents.

Period.
