[quote:Anonymous Coward 19098273:MV8yMTIzMDA2XzM1ODIzNzc3XzU5NDI1OTc1] [quote:Anonymous Coward 33272669:MV8yMTIzMDA2XzM1ODIxNjc1XzFDODc5QUU1] My sister teaches kindergarten in TN and some of the kids, every year without fail, talk about how school doesn't matter because they will get on SSI disability when they get older. It's a culture there and even some of my extended family from there have "bad backs" and have been living a constant vacation for the last decade (with 4 children) The worst thing about living there was seeing large groups of 20-30 year olds going out on ATVs/Hunting in the middle of the week because hey, they never have to work again and get like $5,000 on earned income credit for their kids every year to get a new ATV/$1000 gun. [/quote] This is life in a "red state" in fact most all red states are like this. This is the Republican Party. [/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.”
