To the Editor:

I am deeply ashamed of you for publishing the Commentary "Differentiation Doesn't Work." It presents a ridiculous parody of differentiation. You should know better.

Possibly you could solicit submissions from educators who have well-developed and tested models that work. The author's straw man wouldn't.

All you do by publishing this kind of strident, cynical stuff is to fuel cynicism. There are plenty of real issues to address.
