Abstract A letter to the editor written by Vincent A. McCrossen, Lexington Minute Man, January 5, 1967

McCrossen agrees with "Mentor," the author of two letters to the editor, that the Lexington School Committee has too high expenditures, unjustifiably hires non-teaching personnel, and is "extremist." He goes on to assert that the School Committee is responsible for the low standards of Lexington schools. He uses excerpts from a junior high school honor student's paper to illustrate his point. McCrossen insists the academic decline is national and present in graduate schools as well as primary schools. McCrossen finishes his letter by suggesting "Mentor" submit his name as candidate for school committee, referencing his own failed run several years earlier.
