    Well, like I said, the original story I read was about an 8th grader in Washington State I think, and since it has been scrubbed, I guess all you have is my word, but the kindergardener in England is similar. Do you think that scenario is acceptable Bubba?

    Thank you. But see my point when governments get involved in over regulation....In the story I provided from England it is at the parental level, an intrusion on personal rights over here that I think we need to head off before it does become a problem.

    Imagine what some radical vegan, PETA teacher would do with that authority? I wouldn't even be able to send my kids to school with an egg sandwich...

    because he somehow was able to qualify for disability.
    Thankfully, I heard a couple of his kids have a better work ethic.
    There really should be a work program for able bodied people.

    Actually, I completely agree with having a work program in place for anyone receiving assistance. I think that the government could really benefit and be able to help even more people, if it would actually make those on welfare programs who aren't actually working or working enough hours a week, do a type of work trade program and/or community service and/or go to school. Those on welfare should still have to work at least 40 hours a week. One good way to work this would be to start a work trade program. Get some of those who are having a hard time finding work qualified to take care of children, then have those people watch the children of others on welfare who are having problems finding/affording childcare, which is hindering their job finding efforts. Have some of those on welfare with cars be rides for those who don't have transportation. Those who have trade skills could use those skills to actually do maintenance for others to count for some of their work hours. By making people actually have to work for their welfare, and making that work beneficial to others on welfare, the government would be getting much more for those dollars it spends on assistance programs.

    From your link-Arne's visionAnd so I -- my vision is that schools need to be community centers. Schools need to be open 12, 13, 14 hours a day six, seven days a week, 12 months out of the year, with a whole host of activities, particularly in disadvantaged communities.

    And when schools truly become centers of the community, where you have extraordinary teachers, the best teachers, the best principals, great nonprofit partners coming in during the non-school hours to support and do enrichment activities, social services, then those students will beat the odds, will beat poverty, will beat violence in the community, will beat sometimes dysfunctional families, and be productive citizens long term. They will go to college.

    And people call me crazy when I say they want to raise our kids from cradle to grave.

    I found this article a while back when researching Obama and his Chicago buds.
    I can't verify how much is the truth but it is very interesting Arne Duncan's name is sprinkled through it, among other interesting people.
