As a resident of Port Washington for the past 47 years, I have read many of Mr. Russo's letters to the editor of the Port Washington News. Each year he brings forth another litany of statistics regarding the School Budget. This has become one of our harbingers of spring. This year, however, he has come up with something new. He states that, "we have in public education" an "unnatural monopoly." As an educator for over half a century and a teacher of the history of education, I have never before come across the term "unnatural monopoly" in regards to "public education." Perhaps Mr. Russo would be good enough to enlighten me and the entire community as to the meaning of "unnatural monopoly" in the context of his letter of February 28. Words and terms are important and meanings suffer from careless usage.
