Kudos to Gov. Olene Walker, Ember Storrs and Cypress High for wanting to educate students about credit ("Credit has its pitfalls and perks, teens told," Oct. 24). But isn't asking a bank to provide the instruction like asking Anheuser-Busch to teach kids about responsible drinking or Brown & Williamson to teach about the risks of smoking? A company with a product to sell has a strong incentive to downplay the risks while promoting, however subtly, the benefits.
