Students with Children

Students with children.. What do you think, are they just another statistic because they are young with children. Some say, they should have waited, some say it’s perfectly fine. I say, who is there to judge because having children is one of the ways that we as humans survive generation after generations. Having them earlier, of course in today’s society makes it much harder but students who have children are at least trying to make something better of themselves.

I have heard of people to referring to students with children as non wedded women, young and dumb, making mistakes, and some even discourage our youth from continuing their careers to take care of children.

Women and men for many years have both taken care of their children while obtaining their own pursuits in careers. It can be done. Anyone disagree?

Child Care

It seems that most of the population of the student parents have concerns about child care and child care services.  There are various policy changes that many of us are unaware of. Students who were getting food stamps used to be able to receive child care, but policy change has made it so that that very aspect is impossible. To our dismay, that isn’t the only policy that are undergoing changes. What are the initiatives? Do they want us to drop out of school because we can’t afford child care? Day by day, the policy changes make it harder and harder for the lower class citizens and even middle class citizens of Pennsylvania to even survive, are we still going to put with this and how long? We need to do something, but what?
