To the editors:

Responding to your March 26 article on the next superintendent of schools [Neighborhood News].

As a candidate for the position of superintendent, I publicly deplore and reject racism from whatever source, including James Deanes, who does not want me to be superintendent because I am a white male. I am proud that in my professional and personal life I have sought equality for people of all races and especially fairness and advancement for minorities.

Chicago wants and needs the best superintendent of schools. My commitment is to improve the Chicago schools by putting children first--all children.

Dr. Charles Kyle
