In the commentary, “Time for Fresno Unified trade school is now,” (March 11) Brooke Ashjian addresses many topics and for the most part, he understands the issues. I do have to take exception to one “large” generalization.
He states, “I have never heard of any employer stating that they went to Duncan Poly to recruit employees nor have I seen a job fair put on by them.”
I own a local business and having been involved with Duncan for over 30 years. I have in my employees, three former Duncan students. One has been with me for 20 years, one for 17 years and our newest for two years. They are an integral part of my success and if it were not for Duncan, and in particular, Karen Lopez, I could not imagine where my business would be today.
Just wanted to stand up for a great program!
