The Liberal Blog Organizer Believes The Government Should Reward Lazy Parents With More Taxpayer Dollars

The liberal blog organizer threw this idea out on 8/21/2007 at 1:57 p.m. "Pay low-income parents to attend PTA meetings, teacher/parent conferences, school workshops, and the like. This might help some needy parents who can't afford baby sitters, time off from work, transportation, etc. get more involved in their kids' education."

O.k. so he believes that when a parent doesn't care to even show up and be involved in their child's education that they should get a check to encourage them to be involved. What a slap in the face to every hard working taxpaying citizen that cares about their kids. This is a typical item on any socialist agenda. Reward the lazy and punish the ones carrying the load and paying the freight.

In my community parents work hard 8-12 hours a day and still attend to PTA meetings, parent/teacher conferences, volunteering in the classrooms, doing whatever it takes. At the same time we pay our county taxes and feel good about it. Until, some liberal comes along with a dumb idea like this. He wants to spend our tax dollars on rewarding laziness and incompetence. It would be like paying money for a weekly Slopper News.

Let's see in Knox County we spend nearly $8,000.00 a year per child for public education. After a k-12 education Knox County taxpayers have invested $104,000.00 per child. If a parent can not recognize the value of what the taxpayers are investing and can't spend some sweat equity into the process. Then so be it. They can just stay at home eating their Cheetos (no offense to Cheetos) and watching Jerry Springer or Maury Povich guessing which one of the 6 daddies is the father.

Let's refrain from name calling. That may be welcome over at the liberal blog. But not here.
