[quote:Anonymous Coward 26194713:MV8yMTIzMDA2XzM1ODI1ODc1Xzk5N0IyMEI4] [quote:INK3:MV8yMTIzMDA2XzM1ODI1NTE2XzVFRjA0NUQ3] There is a program in my state, Private Industry Council. You can get free training and the gov will pay for it. They look for areas of growth, and pay for your training. It's a great program, but has its abuses as well. For instance, there were a few people I met in training, who had NO intention of getting a job, and just went from one training program to another in order to keep their welfare and food stamp benefits, and not have to pay back their student loans. People will play the system until they ruin it for those who actually do what they're supposed to do. [/quote] You're right, I've seen this too. It happens in EVERY state, so multiply what you're seeing by 50 and imagine all the money wasted on those people that are "playing the game." I, for one, am SICK of paying for that $**t! [/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 live on the state boarding of Kentucky and Tennessee and heard this pop up on the radio on my way home from work
I wonder if it would play towards multi-child families
