Old days

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - OPINION - Jack Cor­rick Boul­der City

Your Nov. 8 ed­i­to­rial on school dis­ci­pline was ex­cel­lent. One sur­pris­ing de­vel­op­ment has been a no­tice­able change in parental at­ti­tude to class­room be­hav­ior. When I was in school, you were guilty un­til ab­so­lutely proven in­no­cent of bad be­hav­ior. The very worst thing the school could do for mis­be­hav­ior was send a note home to your par­ents that had to be signed.

Less kinder and gen­tler? Per­haps. But at least by the time most stu­dents en­tered high school, they could read, write and do sim­ple math.
