WE CAN'T TURN OUR BACKS ON KIDS WHO NEED HELP

I was outraged at the letter by Janet and John Nowicki who complained about taxpayers having to fund a new school for children who find life difficult. Some youngsters require more attention, love and help than others. Does that make them bad or unacceptable? I don't think so.

Some of these youngsters have parents with more problems than the children and can't help them. One doesn't throw out the kids with the bath water -- one reaches out and helps them become worthwhile people. Most of these teens come from broken homes, so their parents can't afford to foot the bill for a new school.

These young people need help, not more rejection, finger-pointing and labels.
