Label Humor Pieces

Dear Wave,

Thanks for publishing Joan Mettler’s satire, “It’s the Curriculum, Stupid!” in the November 5 Wave. Oh, the hilarity that ensued in our home, when I read aloud Mettler’s argument that the schools need to teach more handball and ping pong, and less math, science, history and geography!

A word to the wise, however: In the future, please label such pieces as “humor,” lest they mislead some readers into thinking that a veteran NYC teacher would seriously argue for gutting all academics in the public schools. Such readers will fail to get the joke.
