LETTERS: Parenting pays off


Re: French space scarce, April 10.

Few parents would go to the extent of working the phone to make 800 dial attempts and never give up.

Erin McCall is certainly no average parent when it comes to being involved in her kid’s education. But she would have been just an average parent among parents of kids attending French-immersion schools.

It follows that it is no surprise such kids tend to do well in their studies if we believe that parents’ involvement would help in kids’ studies, especially in elementary school.
