I was dismayed to read David Burt’s article “Faculty weigh schools” in the Nov. 11 issue. My two daughters attend public school in New Haven and are thriving there academically and socially. I know many Yale parents whose children attend public schools in New Haven and who are equally pleased with the experience. One would never know any of this from Mr. Burt’s article.
