Regarding the article "US Strength Begins in the Classroom," Oct. 23: I disagree with that conclusion. The American family is the fundamental source of this country's strength. But its stability has been suffering considerably with the United State's political and corporate misdirection during the past 25 years. Strengthen the family and we will see better educated children, increased savings, a superior work force, and greater respect for the world we live in.Wayne A. Lawson, Bellevue, Wash.
