To the editor:
Alna has been through a rough couple of months, with folks sharply divided on the issue of private school choice. But votes are good, because they settle things. One side prevails and one does not; and then we move on.
I don’t doubt for a minute the sincerity of the people on the opposite side of the issue from me. They believed that they were doing the right thing for Alna just as much as I did.
But as one wise person on the other side said to me after our last public hearing on the matter: “We probably agree on 99 things out of 100; it’s just on this one we didn’t.” Now we can all get back to the 99.
