* Thank you for your interview with Day Higuchi (Opinion, June 23).
This man should not be president of United Teachers-Los Angeles. He should be governor of California. Higuchi understands the commitment that must be made to education in this state.
Taxpayers cannot afford to use “bureaucratic inefficiency” as an excuse to underfund the state’s school systems. That course is selfish and shortsighted. If people think that merely ensuring educational quality for their own children (or grandchildren) by insulation from problem schools is a solution, they are wrong. California’s future success and prosperity are utterly dependent on the educational level of all its citizens.
