Of course it makes sense. For 8 hours and in some cases longer, someone else is playing parent while they sit at home making another little Johnny or Suzie so they can get another check. They know the kids are getting two free meals, supervision, and being someone else's headache. They can take their government assistance and get their nails and hair done, go put some big rims on the Cadillac but the child doesn't even have a pencil or bookbag. Anonymous people on the net won't convince me that deadbeat parents don't exist. These types of parents want the school to raise their children, hence the phrase "waiting on a break". Guess who else is waiting? Me! I don't see any big mouths volunteering to take the troublemakers home with them!
