The Dominican government is giving RD$1,000 as a bonus to parents that are sending their kids to school.The amount is per kid, not per family. Is not clear if this applies to public schools only or it includes private schools as well.

Since this is from the Dominican government, this too is done with the taxes you pay in the DR (ITBIS and otherwise).

Fishing for Votes aren't we !?
IF YOU CAN"T AFFORD TO EDUCATE YOUR KIDS, DON"T MAKE THEM !!!
That's true, but you can't "put the genie back in the bottle". Once they're born to uneducated young mothers they have to be looked after.

By the way, 1,000 pesos per kid helps, buy doesn't go very far!

You are right but: If they somehow manage to get along with all kind of aid packages the government offers, they might just have another kid because why not; some idiot tax payers are gonna feed then anyway. That's why the poor don't stop with one "genie" but have five, six, ......
