President Barack Obama should not get blame

To the Editor:

As one that has relatives in the teaching profession and relatives that have retired from the profession, I can agree that it is time to scrap this program (“Leave behind ‘No Child,’” Aug. 19). It was and is a bad program.

My concern is your attempt to place the blame for this program on President Obama’s administration, and not state that it was a program instituted by the George W. Bush administration. This seems to be the policy of your editorial staff.

Even your editorial on the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden made not one mention of President Obama’s role in this action, even though, the Bush Administration had been looking for, but could not find him for seven years.

I would appreciate it if your staff in the future would give complete information and not make selective omissions.
