41. This would work for only a few students
If you have a motivated student with a parent who can stay home to supervise, this can work well. However, most kids nowadays have parents that work--assuming they have two parents at home at all--and many students have unstable living conditions. When you're poor, a good school provides more than education; it provides stability and at least one regular meal a day.
