To the Editor:
I read the articles on the public school closings (Mapping the Future series, Jan. 17, 24 and 31). I definitely agree with [Superintendent William R.] Hite. People in Philly are protesting the closings. How many of these people are paying property and City wage taxes? Let them sacrifice like the Catholic school parents are doing. Stop living off the City, and get a job. No more excuses.
I am a 78-year-old senior and have worked all of my life. I am tired of these freeloaders living off me. We owe you nothing — enough is enough. No more free stuff. It is called work ethic.
