Inner-city educators set example

More than three cheers for Roberta Kimmelman and Robert Nottingham, featured in the article ``A Showcase of Ideas From Inner-City School,'' March 7.

What wonderful role models for all of us, parents and educators, to live our convictions.

It seems that the attitudes that created the previous situation at that school prevail everywhere, and the willingness of Ms. Kimmelman and Mr. Nottingham to ``be different'' provides not only a guiding light, but a shoring strength to everyone.

Their example suggests that yes, we can overcome all odds, individuals do make a difference, and society does benefit! Nancy Mawhenney, Bethlehem, Penn.
