Kids in public schools have right to equal education

I want to respond to Jeffery Donahue’s letter “Parents who want best for kids not elitists” in the April 18 edition of The Lancaster News.

No one is being selfish at all. It is just that everyone can’t afford to send their children to private schools. My children have learned perfectly fine for the last five years and are on honor roll. They are not being rushed to learn. That is why they have after-school programs.

There are children who can’t learn as fast as others and there are rough schools. But that is the situation with any school, public or private. The biggest problem is how children are raised. The responsibility falls on the parents.

I pay my taxes and feel that my children in public schools have as much right to the money for education as private schools do.
