We found it hard to believe that the Westport Board of Education decided that Veterans Day is not important enough to be a school holiday -- as it is in many cities and towns across America, including many neighboring towns.

One can't help but wonder what this says to our youth about the importance of recognizing and respecting our veterans. School announcements or assemblies are no substitute for stopping a day's activity to acknowledge and respect a very important national holiday.
