To the Editor:

It was gratifying to learn that Laura Bush is throwing her weight behind a program for at-risk students (“First Lady Embraces Cause of Youths at Risk,” Feb. 23, 2005); we educators can use all the help we can get. But why am I not surprised that the adjectives used to describe her “program” are “simple” and “inexpensive”?
