    Sounds like an ideal libertarian philosophy to me. But, I still oppose the idea.

    Re: Cincinnati High School Paying Students To Come To School

    I've worked with clients with a 9th grade education who made more in a day selling drugs than I could earn in a year with my Masters degree. You would be surprised how few actually go to prison, and even those who do tend to find prison a lot more accommodating than the mean streets of their home towns.
    yea because there are millions of millionaire drug dealers who have been successful for a lifetime. (eyes rolling) That idea that all the street corner drug dealers are banking 70-80,000 a day is just dumb. Most of these kids might make a couple hundred a day. Which might go on for a couple years before they start getting busted. Stop fooling yourself and glorifying a disgusting lifestyle.

    I dont care what you read. There were millions born that year, because 2 were that successful means nothing. It is a coincidence.

    Actually, most drug dealers make less than they would working at Wendys. You have to have good connections, smarts, and a lot of ambition to make a thousands in a day.

    I understand your point. However if prisons and welfare weren't so appealing then you wouldn't need to entice children to better themselves.

    Dude, I listed only one thing those two men share. They have far, far, far more factors that are based entirely on the circumstance of where, when, and to whom they were born than the work they actually had to do. Their wealth is primarily the result of chance. If they had been born a year later, or to a different family, then they would not have been as successful as they were. This isn't up for debate. It is statistically demonstrable. But I'm not surprised that you wouldn't want to read a book that might challenge your preconceived notions. Critical thinking isn't exactly the strong suit conservatives.

    Ah, yes, parenting and education in 2012.

    Of course, if evil rich white men would let these kids go to school in the first place, there'd be no problem.

    this must be a new school-I have never heard of it before these news reports came out. Its a charter school that started about ten years ago.

    Here is a video of it.

    School pays students to attend class (1:14) - The Washington Post

    A bit of a different spin that the OP presented.

    You are making all kinds of assumptions there. Their wealth is not by chance, it is the result of great ideas and hard work. You don't know what would have happened if they were born a year later. You have no idea whether or not i will or wont read that book, or what my reasons for reading it or not reading it are. and lastly you are assuming that i am conservative just becuase. You didnt make a single statement in that post that is actually a fact.

    I'm not making any assumptions. Read the book.
