According to Tennessean.com:
Tired of seeing so many suspended students on the streets, Harper, D-Nashville, introduced a bill that would force kids to stay in school, even if behavior problems got them thrown out.
"We started asking questions about what we could do and how we could make things better," she said. "These kids should not be at home watching As the World Turns."Oh, I beg to differ.
There are all sorts of things to gain from watching ATWT. One firm pep talk from Nancy or a "kiddo" from Kim, and that kid will be on the straight and narrow forever!
