I don’t have all the answers to the issue Warren Bolton raises in his Feb. 20 column (“Our future is killing our future”) but would like to address the subject.

Young boys getting young girls pregnant and just walking away could be slowed if, after the second child, that child is put up for adoption.

Birth control should be provided, and young parents should be placed in a work camp, schooled and required to work for some time (how long depend on attitude).

Students who will not cooperate with the teachers should be removed from the classroom and put in a facility that can keep control.

We have more than one generation who has never seen anyone at home get up and go to work. Cheap housing, free food, a monthly check: Why work? Some may think that is a good living.
