Education is a lot like the horse to water analogy. You can give a person (the horse) an education (take him to the water), but you can't make him drink it (learn anything). The terminally stupid, like the poor (sometimes, but not always the same), will always be around. Perhaps one solution is to take the people on the dole that can't afford to actually raise children and have them put on some kind of birth control that suppresses ovulation or sperm production as a precondition for welfare. Like anything else with the govt, you take any money, you have to agree to certain stipulations and interference or just forswear the assistance.
