Dismantling Riverhead’s Latin program would be both a disservice and an insult

by
"Latin is so much more than learning a dead language. It is learning how languages work, it is a building block for English and other Romance languages, it is gaining the ability to analyze language, to applying critical thinking to texts, and to understanding so much of the basis of law, government, literature, and art not only of the past, but of today." Guest column by Dr. Virginia Campbell, a Professor of Classics at the University of Leeds in Englandand a 1994 graduate of Riverhead High School, where she first studied Latin under the tutelage of 'Doc' Greenberger.
