A check, food stamps, or medicaid? When would it start? Kindergarten? First Grade? If a kid doesn't pass...he doesn't eat? No doctor? Oh...wait...I know. If the parents can't pay the rent...because their check got cut...they can throw them out! Or better yet....let's just get them all jobs....we have so many available...I mean it's not like there isn't a thread her a day with folks rejoicing about the GREAT job they got. This is an absolute fail on so many levels it's laughable. [/quote] it will only affect cash assistance. it will not, i repeat will not affect foodstamps or medicaid or housing assistance. [/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.”

I wonder if it would play towards multi-child families
