D.) All the above

They do care about the kids and help some with social skills and prepare them to learn. If babysitting it is, then the baby sitters there provide a desperately needed relief for some from their home environment

More wasted money by our school system. Parents are responsibility for their children, not the taxpayers.

Don't know if the money could be better spent or if there is significant waste to be reduced. For some parents aware of their failings, trying to get their kids into My Little School seems to be a sign of some sense of responsibility.

There are but two types of persons:

There is a type of person who feels awful for kids born into poor homes or to bad parents. They're the ones who are careful themselves not bear a child if they can't handle it's financial burden.

The second type of person lives a rotten lifestyle. They are so penalized with the incidentals of their life that they can't take time to feel awful for other poor kids, let alone chip in to help them. Worse, they unwisely bring children into their dismal world.

The third entity is the government who ensures that the first person PAYs for the second person's kids. By using nice words like, "help", "care", "social needs", "at-risk", "culturally disadvantaged", all stigmas are covered over and all grants are increased for next year. All social workers get a nice fat little salary increase next year, too.

Re Answer D above. You may be a bit too simplisitic. Agree there are those, perhaps many here, whose lifestyles show indifference to kids. Agree also there those who truly care about kids in general. I susupect there are some in the middle with limited skills and resources who may be trying to do good for their kids but find it hard. How we discipline the former without unnecessarily penalizing the latter is a tough question. Social disintegration from the crime, stupidity, and additional burdens grown up problem kids pose must surely be taken into account in the equation. There is no licensing requirements or other safeguard requirements for having children. And sterilizing the demonstrated unworthy has not be condoned in this country. And, of course, poverty is an industry from which some benefit.

'Simplistic' and 'Simple' are words everyone uses to try to insult my thinking. Mastering numbers and machines is the persuit of reducing things into the most simple resultant form.

But government and school people came from arts or social studies backgrounds, where 'Everything is shades of everything else.' That way there is lots of wiggle room when their projects fail.

Worse, when they do get their job, they are promoted based upon how much grant money they secured or superfluous people they hired.

Results? Don't be silly. Results are NEVER the goal. It's the INTIENTIONS of projects like this that matter to grantors of 'My Little School'

Answer D, I am not calling you simple, or criticizing your thinking. I do disagree that reducing people to the two classifications you have chosen is the best representation of the situation though it is a representation, and perhaps a good representation. THe kids who attend My LIttle School have to qualify, that is they have to be lacking social or learning or other skills to a defined degree. While some of skill deficiencies may be traceable to bad life styles of the parents, some may not. Who pays for attending to these child deficiencies is another issue. That some, possibly many or most, in the fields of education and social work lack a quantitative background can be problemmatical.

It's okay, I don't mind being insulted. Truth is simple. Bad parenting shouldn't be rewarded.
