Help city kids read by grade 3

Nov 3, 2013 Full story: Rochester Democrat and Chronicle 9

What's wrong with the lazy useless parent(s)? Education starts at home. Then again half the parent(s) probably read at a sixth grade or lower level.

Grade three? Most should have started in kindergarden, 1st grade.
I know, I know.....
Half of them do not make it to Kindergarten. They skip or parents do not send them. You have to attend school to learn.

40 % graduation rate. What do you expect? No need to get educated anyway. The government will support you for life. And the community will give you free food, backpacks, Christmas toys, Thanksgiving meals and free bread and pastries from Wegmans. No need to pay taxes. They pay you to sit home and become a nonproductive member of society.

No hope here. The welfare system has created this mess and it will only get worse. The system has created lazy non productive people that do not give a shit about nutin but what they get for free. Not even the kids are important.

Aunt leaves kids in house age 3 and 4 and they die. She has no regrets about the kids and just wants the food stamps.

As someone else once posted ... they only have to know enough to fill out a Democratic Party voter registration.
