I would also add, aside from the "book it" program (total 80s baby), the McDonald's for grades program (definitely not around anymore with childhood obesity) and the reading programs at libraries that gave prizes when you read books during the summer, we should NOT be incentivizing things like PTA attendance.

The only thing I understand is tying school attendance to benefits. At least in my neighborhood, those on welfare tend to be stay at home parents. So, if you're home anyway, you NEED to be ensuring that your child is in school. But punishing the entire family if a child genuinely has a learning disability and no resources to combat that disability is unconscionable.

Man, I feel sorry for the child who "causes" their family to lose their benefits.

I remember one of my cousin's neighbors beat her teenage son in the middle of the street with a broom cuz Section 8 found weed in his room during their housing inspection and it could have gotten them kicked out.

Just imagine what some unfit heifer would do the child that makes her lose cash assistance or food stamps.

Schools are hard up for volunteers...why don't they have these "stay at home parents" volunteer at these schools or whereever else they are needed during the day for that check.  U can't read well enough to check your childs homework? well i'm gone need u to sign up for these reading classes.  U got folks sittin' at home not doing a damn thing.  Let them come to the school and get involved.  It might change their mindset.
 
When I was a teen I got on welfare for a minute and I had to work for that bit of change.  clean parks or whereever it was I was assigned to.  I couldn't sit at home and collect a check.
 
I don't agree with this because like it's been mentioned...it places the burden upon the child.  They need to come up with another way.

This is so dumb. What about the working poor? What about those with terrible school districts? What about those without access to tutors and other supplemental education needs? Kids already get pushed through enough. There are just going to be more poor kids in special education classes and more child abuse.

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. 


you don't think sh*tty teachers play a part? at all?
