Providing equal opportunities

Providing equal opportunities

Thanks for the article ''Why Americans Get Riled About Racial Hiring,'' March 31. When will we see the moral wisdom of providing quality education to all?

And when will we have the moral leadership to insist on this? The competition for higher education and jobs will be fair only when all American children are given the same foundation to spring from.

If we universally implement higher standards and opportunities at an early education level, we won't have to lower them when we get to the university level. This can only contribute to a highly educated and trained work force.

Not only is quality education for all a moral imperative; it's just darned practical.
