Letter - Trish Burnett

November 25, 2000

A few weeks ago, one of our local newspapers carried the banner

headline "Burbank Scores Soar" referring to the great increase in test

scores in most of the schools of the Burbank Unified School District. It

would have been very fitting and accurate if the next banner headline had

read "Thank you Burbank Teachers!" because -- without overlooking all the

others who also work long and hard to improve the education we deliver --

it is, ultimately, what the teacher does in the classroom that makes the


big difference.

So, while it has been stated at the school board meetings and spoken

of in private conversation, it bears repeating: Thank-you Burbank
