Dear Mr. Chrisitian:
I am an eleventh grade student enrolled in a Dade County public high school. Due to the mass incarcerations of my teachers, I am without my education. In Dade, and throughout the state school boards are "opening" up schools with [?] crews. This attempt to impress the teachers with the state's power is a fraud! Substitutes, PTA ladies and parents cannot properly educate our students. I am asking you to end this [?] and close the states schools until qualified instructors can return to the [?].
Sincerely, 
Bob Kirkpatrick
