Lane Filler's column "Cameras in the classroom? Sure!" [Opinion, April 24] was right on target. Get a camera on the kids at the kitchen table at homework time, when a caregiver is with them, chatting about the school day successes and challenges, and while they review the work assigned for home. This is where education happens first and leaves a forever fingerprint.

We have to put school into perspective. The role of teacher is played out, foremost, at home. Parents deserve most of the credit -- good or bad -- when the credits roll.
