Christopher Bordona: Love of reading starts with parents

In regards to the letter “Instilling a love for reading” (Dec. 2, Page A9), I agree with the writer’s assessment (reading “is a necessity”). However, the problem – a lack of reading at home – can be rectified as more parents take equal responsibility in their children’s education. Parents have more power than anyone (teachers, administrators, politicians, government) to make students believe education should be their No. 1 priority. When children see their role models at home take education seriously, society will begin to see a positive trend.
