So, some schools are going to pay kids with cash to try to get them to start coming to school? I think this is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. Most schools don’t have the money to keep the music department open and have to cut corners every where yet they are paying kids to go to school?! What bullshit! In the first place, it’s not the schools job to make sure the kids go to school, it’s the parents. The parents need to get off their lazy asses and make damn sure their child is going to school. Start being parents and take care of your children. And how bout instead of trying to bribe the kids into going to school, why don’t you punish the parents for not making the kids go? Don’t give me that bullshit that because of this reason or that reason parents can’t make their kids go. When my mom and dad worked 12 to 14 hours a day each, they still found a way to make sure I went to school, did my chores and homework. And when my mom became a single parent when I was in high school, once again she found ways to make sure I did the things I was suppose too. So the parents may have to give up doing things that they once did and it may be hard but that’s what you do when your a parent. Your children’s well being comes before anything else.
