    Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor:

    [In the 12/13 issue] I was implicated by a Statesman article and editorial in a police raid on one of “Jason’s” CHE 129/131 exam prep sessions. While it is correct that I visited the session around 6:30 for about 15 minutes to observe, it is not correct that I called the police raid, which occurred about 2 hours later. I was impressed with the intensity with which the students were studying chemistry, and I am appalled that I could be accused, even by implication, of calling the police to bring a halt to a learning situation. Unfortunately no one from the Statesman contacted me in order to provide a more balanced and accurate report. I am writing this letter because it is crucial for students and teachers to have mutual respect and trust for each other, and I just want to “clear the air” of this incident. Sincerely, David Hanson Professor of Chemistry
