'Some' words very important

Sir -- As a teacher of just over 30 years, I am very familiar with the slant put on some comments made about teachers in general.

But on this occasion, I am choosing to respond to the general accusation made by Brendan O'Connor that teachers have contributed to the "Anglophobia that survives in this country" (Sunday Independent, May 29, 2011).

I can confirm that I have never made any such contribution either at a professional or personal level regarding any kind of phobia.
