Not every child is born into a loving family. I agree that children need a stable support system in which to thrive, but, it is sheer enlightenment, critical thinking, and intellectual enrichment that drives at the very heart of what is written in the Declaration of Independence. Where a great parent is a child's moral compass, a great teacher, a great mentor is their intellectual one.
