The entire editorial board of the Quad-City Times ought to be ashamed of its editorial on the front page of Sunday's Opinion section regarding suspension rates in Davenport Community School District.

I read the diatribe against the Davenport school administration and for that matter the school board. Could you have made it any more one-sided?

Executive Editor Autumn Phillips prides herself in initiating the “Big Story” and that is why this newspaper has failed so miserably with this editorial.

All the facts should have been presented and not just the editorial board's negativity. I suppose that editorial board members think that this is the way to increase readership.

Take a good look at yourselves and think about presenting the entire story the next time you decide to write such an inflammatory opinion.
