People also can participate via teleconference from the Lawrence office at 1901 Del.

The sooner we can get these kids involved in government care, the better. That way we can nurture them in a culture of entitlement. And when they reach 18, they will be ready to be lifelong supporters of those politicians which promise the greatest involvement of government in their lives.

STRS would rather see these children being left at home alone. Afterall, why would an infant need supervision?
