College Issues

Letter to the Chicago Tribune Magazine, August 24, 2008

  Just a word of thanks for Jessica Reaves' excellent story about Matthew Pietrafetta ("The College Issue," Aug. 3). This high-energy educator is part of a long line of teachers of Italian heritage in the U.S., from Dr. Leonard Covello (principal of the first multicultural high school) to Dr. Anna Anastasi (the first to discover standardized cultural bias in national testing). We're sure that Pietrafetta 's passion will make a difference in his students' lives. And we appreciate your willingness to remind people that Italian Americans are made up of more than just pizza and pasta.
