Letter: The need for accuracy
How disappointing is it to see the headline in Tuesday’s edition of Vail Daily stating the start of school is three weeks away when, in fact, it actually is less than two weeks until the Aug. 16 start date. Additionally, official correspondence from Eagle County Schools to (at least) Eagle Valley High School students states that the first day of school is Sept. 16!
Is this what we should expect — misinformation because of someone’s lack of oversight?
It would be my opinion that the need for accuracy is greatest on the most observable news source in the area, the Vail Daily, as well as on our educational system to provide accurate correspondence, especially when it’s spending taxpayer dollars to send it.
