Parents who receive state assistance for minor children should not continue receiving aid if the minors do not go to school.

Parents should be held accountable, and their children should not be allowed to drop out of school. If minors drop out of school, any assistance should be stopped immediately.

No state aid should be given minor parents who don’t go to school. The state should ensure that any minor with children is enrolled in school before starting any aid. If the minor parents drop out of school, the state aid should stop immediately.

I believe that the school police officers should check out reasons for any absence. School absences will lower, and the young parents who receive aid will be at school each morning.
