or the second time, you have published a story about the Mills Violano Virtuoso with a glaring error. At the top of page 12 of the March 23 WEDNESDAY JOURNAL, you show a picture of the Mills Violano in the corner of a room at Pleasant Home. This picture is correct.
While I don't have direct knowledge of the way OPRF's TEAM operates, my interactions with special education and other OPRF leaders have been marked by the patterns of obstructionism and discrimination that Scott Berman, Terry Burke, and Carolyn Effgen described in the April 20 VIEWPOINTS section.
