    right along side either their parents in the fields or shops. later they were lined up sent to the mines and factories in the towns.  that's why we have child labor
    laws - the ones the salamander wants to overturn.

    and now you have drop out children having babies.  being raised in a home with no background in higher education its a wonder any of the kids break out and go on to college at all.  that's tenacity. more power to them - and all the help they can get.  

    in missouri they have a program to send single parents to college with child care, but after you get your degree you can never apply for state aid again.  sounds like a win/win.

    in order to compete with the world we need better education from pre-school to college and beyond.

    we also need a better educated citizenry to vote in their own best interest and not like sheep.
