This


i honestly believe that if a child wants to succeed, they will, regardless of the type of school they go to. if anything, parent input is what will make them succeed. parents doing the basics such as checking homework, signing book diaries, reading together (even 15mins a day), showing their faces at school, calling here and there on the phone for progress report, etc can make a difference. the parent does not even need to be educated to do all that...it is actually minimal input. 

in low income areas they have so many FREE after school stuff where the parents can really take advantage but they rarely don't. i don't understand why. it's a win-win situation...send the child to learn, have some free time to yourself instead of letting your child run amok on streets.

My aunt had a student who was sick. They called her mother to come and get her. Her mother objected to coming because she said she was spending time with her boyfriend and the girl would get in the way of that. My aunt said the woman lives on assistance. Does he not realize that a LOT of kids have stupid parents? Are they supposed to starve and be under a bridge because of something they have no control over?

i don't see that as the point. the point would be for children to have the education to not fall into the cycle. 
and for that, i wouldn't mind them spending money.

but this is about the grades. not if they have bad/good teachers.
and if they aren't getting the grades, a parent might be more concerned to actually see progress by going to those teacher meetings, and finding out why their student is doing all they can in the classroom... but getting sucky grades.

If this law/provision passes, I would a expect a uptick in crime.  Plus does this law takes into account if the student school is adequately funded and has access to free to low cost tutors?  I mean a teacher can only do so much within a x amount of hours in the day.

IMO. students aren't likely to be self-motivated. especially if they come from certain situations. 
so even providing those tutors, with no one signing up for it can be an issue. 

i also think this could cut down on students who skip class without their parent's knowledge. 
why an uptick in crime?

This...welfare isn't an automatic ticket to failure. I know plenty of people who grew up on welfare who did well in school and went on to get off the system and be "productive members" of society.

ETA: I also knew/know plenty of well-to-do's who were total academic bums.

In other words, financial circumstances have NOTHING to do with someone's ability to do well in school. Now, actual parenting skills do.
