Teen Moms: Do We Help Them?
The Hartford Courant reports that Hartford Public Schools has cut funding for three staff members who operate the day care program which helps teen moms graduate high school. Now that is controversial.
I tend to be a conservative thinker when it comes to bailing out those who make poor choices. But I am willing to allow for the sometimes necessary bailout. For these students who will lose this service, the ramifications only perpetuate the cycle of poverty. For that reason, I think Hartford Public Schools has this one wrong.
