    It's the best system out there.

    Oh, and also, we have a mixed economy.

    There were several states that had job training programs available for people that were on food stamps and/or TANF. The programs varied a great deal from state to state but they typically involved sending the recipient to school to earn some sort of certificate or an associate's degree. It was usually set up between Worksource and a local CC. Some even offered free or reduced child care at an approved daycare.

    A lot of these programs have been discontinued or faced cuts to the point where they cannot cover the total cost of attendance or give daycare vouchers. If a person does some careful planning, it can still be done. I should know.
