Letter to the Editor: Get Facts Straight

To the Editor

Re: Jan. 13 letter "Replace the Teachers Not the Building."

I wish that either Mr. Jim Roberts or the editor would fact check those assertions cited in the newspaper. Mr. Roberts incorrectly states T.C. Williams High School is one of the most costly high schools in the country. It is not even the most expensive high school building in the area, which is Arlington's Washington and Lee at almost $100 million for that renovation. Contrary to his letter, TC is also now accredited, as reported in the Gazette in October 2012.
