Public school funding
Regarding the article "Texas School Dilemma Faces Early 1993 Deadline," Dec. 8: I agree with the remarks of Glenn Linden, a history professor at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, that until we recognize that our nation's children are not yours or mine but collectively each citizen's, we won't find a solution to the public school funding crisis.
Obviously, when it comes to our children, greater concern should be given by our legislators to reach a consensus through input, accommodation, and compromise, and not by single-party politics, as was the case in the recent failed legislative session in Austin, Texas. I applaud the Monitor's staff for reporting on the opportunities amid chaos. Peter R. McCook, Tyler, Texas
