Congratulations to Joan Libman for her article on "Building Better Kids" (Nov. 8).
Other California communities that have recently adopted successful character building programs include Pasadena, Glendale, San Bernardino, San Marcos and Rosemead.
People who think character education should be left solely to parents forget that many parents today lack the positive attitudes and values that their children so desperately need to acquire to become productive workers, parents and citizens. Many single working parents simply lack the time.
Our schools can and must fill this gap.
