PAGE 24 - Commentary
I read the headline of Gene I. Maeroff's Commentary ("'School Smart' Parents Strengthen Education," Oct. 25, 1989) with enthusiasm. I share the outlook it seemed to suggest, and since I'm always eager to read the opinions of someone who agrees with me, I started right in. By the end of the essay, however, Mr. Maeroff and I had parted ways--he having estimated too conservatively the role of parents in their children's education.
