Incentive to learn begins in the home

Regarding “Asian nations dominate international test” (Associated Press, Dec. 4): The United States is the most powerful and advanced nation in the world. Yet we can't place in the top 20 internationally with test scores. In the past three years, the United States has shown little improvement. We look as though we're a nation of academic dummies. Shame on our students, parents and teachers.

The incentive to learn and excel begins in the home. With little or no family structure or a lack of rules, we're doomed to failure. We need good educators and schools, but throwing money at the problem does little to solve it. We know how to do it and we can do it! It's time to get the lead out and buckle down.
