Brothers Keeper Campaign

Mr President, my name is Matthew Pinkham and I watched you unveil your campaign to help minority males grow into responsible adults. Although i do not agree with most of your policies and how you govern this country, I agree there is a serious problem amongst our youth. Mr. President, I am certain if you start holding the parent(s) responsible for their childrens behavior, we would have more success.
My idea would be to any family that receives government assistance ,their child must attend school. If any child quits school, the family would lose all benefits. Mr. President, this would ensure that parents are keeping young men on the road to success.
Thank you for taking the time to read
