The article “A hard lesson: change can come too fast” (Page A1, June 24), about turmoil at English High in the wake of its outgoing headmaster, is interesting in light of the Globe’s advocacy of what amounts to the elimination of teachers’ seniority rights.
Lisa Pred-Sosa’s nearly three decades of skillful, inspired, and acclaimed service at English High meant nothing; she was able to be removed under the new rules of the new administration. Can this be right?
If our seniority rights in Boston had been gone, Pred-Sosa may not even have been able to find another position. Future students such as Salma Hussain, the English High valedictorian who thanked Pred-Sosa and others for her success, would be worse off.
