Unfair criticism of Ruel Reid
THE EDITOR, Sir:
Senator Ruel Reid is a pragmatic, dynamic and successful educator who possesses an air of authority that may be misinterpreted as pomposity or arrogance, as your editorial of Tuesday, March 6, 2018, titled 'The Pied Piper and church schools', suggested.
He possesses immense knowledge of the ins and outs, ups and downs of schools in his country. I believe that he will accommodate meeting with church representatives and interests from grant-aided schools to listen to, and iron out, their grouses.
Archbishop Emeritus Donald Reece is correct to advise amicable dialogue.
