I enjoy reading Education Week.

However, in your story, "Heritage Influence is Rooted in Broad Network" (Oct. 5) you state: "And two former senior research associates of the committee worked for Heritage: Phillip N. Truluck, who is currently the foundation's executive vice president; and Donald J. Senese, a contributor to Mandate who is now assistant secretary for educational research and improvement in the Education Department." Although I have admiration for the great work of the Heritage Foundation, I have never been one of its employees. I came to the Republican Study Committee in September of 1976 and retained that employment until April 30, 1981 when I became a consultant at the Education Department. I bring this to your attention only to keep the record correct.

Keep up your fine work.

Donald J. Senese Assistant Secretary for Educational Research and Improvement U.S. Department of Education Washington

Editor's Note: Mr. Senese was a volunteer when he contributed to Mandate for Leadership. In 1978, he wrote a monograph for the Heritage Foundation (Indexing the Inflationary Impact on Taxes: The Necessary Economic Reform), for which he was paid.
