Letter: Prepping students for success starts at home, not school

Must Read

Editor: Your recent coverage concerning the achievement gap in Arlington Public Schools was thoughtful rather than the usual hysteria. However, no school system anywhere is solely responsible for the learning gap, and no amount of money thrown at the learning gap will fix the problem.

The learning problem originates in each individual student’s broken home, disinterested, perhaps addicted parent/s, no respect for education in the home, limited ability to speak or understand English, abuse and brutality in the home, and on and on.

Social decay is the root of the problem. Overworked teachers can’t fix that.
