Letter: Huppenthal owes me an apology

Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal responded to a letter I wrote to the AFN (“Huppenthal’s money plea off base,” Feb. 17) criticizing him for pleading with the Legislature for $35 million for a computer system for the Department of Education when I’ve never heard of him making a plea to them for money for something that would actually benefit students. In his guest commentary (“Barlam continues to hold long-time political grudge,” AFN, Feb. 27) he states that in the past I have criticized him for his support of charter schools, and then goes on to chastise me for working in one.

This is a defamation of my character, and I offer Huppenthal this challenge. If you can find any documentation of my criticizing or saying anything negative about charter schools, or your support for them, I will publicly apologize to you in a letter to the Ahwatukee Foothills News. If you cannot, I would expect you to apologize to me in the same public forum. I stand by what I say John Huppenthal, do you?
