Although public schools are supported by taxes, parents who try to find out what their children are learning wind up frustrated (“Why schools won’t tell parents what their kids are being taught,” The New York Post, Sept. 6). Therein lies a paradox because educators know that parental involvement is vital to learning.
Some districts argue that a particular curriculum is copyrighted as a pretext to discourage inquiring parents and others. But the truth is that almost all books that students read are copyrighted. It’s little wonder that parental choice is going to grow.
