    I'd be interested to see the ethnic and socioeconomic breakdown of those who apply. My guess is those who are taught to value hard work are more likely to apply than those who are taught to get what they can for free.

    mrsbowen: go back under your rock. "Taught" being the key word here. Yes, the children are "taught" so go comment on an adult story rather than a youth related article.
