[quote:sTTsTTT:MV8yMTIzMDA2XzM1ODIyNjM0XzFENTlDMDk5] [quote:Anonymous Coward 33217568:MV8yMTIzMDA2XzM1ODIwMDQ1XzhCOUJEMkYx] We need to fix the economy so that the mother can stay home while the men work. Our culture won't change (especially the welfare culture)until this comes back as a social norm. It's impossible for a mother working at Dollar General, and on food stamps with 3 kids to ensure their children are doing good in school. Defects in family values and economic disparity must begin with a change in our economic standard that has failed 99% of us. This is the same as limiting magazine rounds in guns. Politicians need to google "root cause analysis". [/quote] True, in many ways for those who are in stable, traditional marriages, where there is a Mother and a Father raising their Children. When there is only the Mother/Father tasking others to raise Children, working outside of the home full-time (even part-time) to provide basic needs, there is a disconnect. I'm in my late-50s and watched first hand the dissolution of the traditional AND extended family base. Plus the rise of "welfare"... Basic education: Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, American Civics, Home Economics and Home Repair. Starting in the primary grades and finishing in the secondary grades, learned skills building upon learned skills and reinforced through practical application. A grading system of Pass/Fail. It might actually work to the advantage of Parents, Children, and Society at Large. Sen. Campfield has a valid point. [/quote]
"A Tennessee lawmaker is pushing a controversial new bill that would tie welfare benefits to students' performance in school."
"Republican state Sen. Stacey Campfield last week introduced the legislation, which calls for the state to cut welfare benefits to parents whose kids don't do well in class. Critics are already panning the proposal as unfair, and one that could hurt students in the end -- but Campfield is defending his idea, which he says would force parents to take a more active role in their children’s education."
“We’re not asking children to re-write the Magna Carta,” Campfield told FoxNews.com Monday. “A D-minus gets you through.”
