Teaching should begin in the home

To the editor:

Everyone has an opinion, but this is the cold, hard facts.

Selma could hire 5,000 police officers but if we don’t teach respect of the law at our homes it is worthless.

We can spend billions on our schools, hire the best teachers, it will not matter if we don’t teach it at home.

Will this ever change? Absolutely not.

Why? The answer is simple. When our government encourages and rewards bad behavior, and will and does punish you for doing good, don’t expect to ever see things improve.

The blame for 90 percent of our problem even with our form of government, still starts at home!
