One can't argue with Pamela Atkinson's reasoned plea for the necessity of pre-school education in Utah ("Impact of mentoring in education," Opinion, Feb. 28). The case she makes for Utah's kids is irrefutable.
However, her list of "essential elements" who make this happen committed teachers, dedicated parents and passionate volunteers had one glaring omission. By broadcasting the best educational resources into every Utah home and classroom, KUED and PBS play a proud and essential role in the education of our state's youngest citizenry.
And we provide this every day, free of charge, as we have for more than a half-century.
