Mr. Isaac’s letter, printed in the February 13 edition, demonstrates why charter and private and parochial schools are needed.

It is the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution, which references our unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There is no “pursuit” of liberty; liberty is a given. Pursuing happiness is noble, but it does not mean that we will attain it.

Rather than saying that his comment is evidence of public school training, I prefer to believe it was the result of “condensation,” or a slip of the tongue.
