A stay-at-home dad reports struggles of his own in the "Letter of the Day"
The Star Tribune's "Letter of the Day" in the Letters to the Editor section is a response to my essay, by someone who left his job to stay home with his kids and is now struggling to return to the job market. The twist: It's from a dad.
Scott Richardson gave up teaching, "a profession I dearly love," and now "can't even get an interview." He has some alternative plans, which he describes in the letter.
So far, it has one online response, questioning why it was designated "Letter of the Day."
