I thoroughly agree with John Florez's column on Aug. 10 ("Make the education elephant dance"). He said if we want to make the right changes in our educational system, we should get answers from the students, parents and tax payers, not the so called professionals who have brought us to our current predicament.
This same philosophy could also be used for the Post Office and any failing enterprise. IBM made a complete turn-around in their business focus when they listened to the brightest minds in their own company. Straight thinking individuals who have no other motive than to solve current problems would readily agree that unions are destroying our cities and states, the post office and our educational system because their highest priority is to win contracts with special rights and privileges for their members over doing what is in the best interest of the businesses or organizations they serve.
