Letters to the Editor

Success in classroom depends on the home

Kudos to the Feb. 20 letter writer ("Marriage and family can resolve many ills") for saying what many of us believe but remain silent about.

No amount of money can or will improve education until parents accept responsibility for their children and provide a stable home environment with appropriate expectations.

After 30 years in the classroom, I maintain it is the involved parent who makes the successful student.
