Go Chris Petrillo
This is in regards to Chris Petrillo’s letter written in The Wave last week.
I commend Chris for following-up with the school situation. It is a shame that a beautiful school like Beach Channel has to shut down. They had such interesting courses, like oceanography, etc. available to all the students.
I think that what Joel Klein did to Chris was awful; it just shows what kind of person he is. At least if he could not make it, have someone from his staff greet Chris. Chris is more of a person than Joel Klein will ever be.
Chris, pursue your dreams and ideas and just never let go of your ideas and go for it; these bureaucratic radicals do not know how talented you are!
Good luck to you! Being a retired para, I know how some people in the school system can be!
