    I'm not a grammar expert, but I don't think it needs to be there.

    You might want to see what others and Ms. Sue or writeacher have to say. I hope I helped!

    Your sentence is correct either way. I personally prefer the in this construction.

    Use of articles is often optional. In fact, the people in the UK don't use articles in a few constructions that are people in the US do.
