To the editor:

I am encouraged and delighted to see the many parents who are stepping up to the plate and speaking up in defense of honorable education.

My husband was a teacher many years ago, at a time when four-letter words were not allowed in the classrooms and in the hallways. It was also a time when God's name was treated with respect, and as a result, treating people with respect followed.
