On behalf of the Toledo Federation of Teachers, I commend the staff, students, and parents of Scott High School for the way they handled a difficult situation (“Standoff scares Scott students,” Dec. 3).
The tireless efforts of the Scott staff, in concert with the community, have created a culture that resulted in an orderly and efficient resolution of a potentially volatile situation. It is unfortunate that the great works of many are overshadowed by the bad choices of a few.
If you have not had the opportunity to visit Scott High School, I encourage you to do so. You would realize that this is one example of how perception is not reality.
President Toledo Federation of Teachers South Byrne Road
