As parents who pay lots of money for our children’s education for ten months a year, I feel that schools should work with us to make sure that they are giving us what we’re paying for.

Dear Editor, Rocky’s Zweig’s article was a surprise. I usually read Rocky for his humor – and he still was funny! – but this week’s column was right on target and definitely keen mussar for me, especially for Rosh Hashana.
How many times have I popped my foot in my mouth, mistakenly asking people something or alluding to something that could have hurt them? We need to go on a word “diet” and put our forks down between “word bites” so we can make sure not to inadvertently harm someone. Wishing everyone a kesiva, v’chasima tova, Yossi Klein
