              Thank those who teach more than just three R’s

                    School not the only place for teaching, learning

                    President Barack Obama spoke about education earlier this week, suggesting holding teachers and students accountable and considering a longer school year. Those things, plus money, may help Johnny learn to read better, but probably not any more than things his parents, siblings and relatives could do at home. Editor Don Whitten calls on family members to do their part in the education process as well. (September 28, 2010, Page 4)
