Whatever it Takes

January 17, 2013

A few days ago on another thread, Tim Johnson of Whatever it Takes said that WIT had "piloted a welfare-to-work initiative that contributed to a greater-than-90% decrease in welfare rolls in Clarke County. The teen pregnancy rate is down by more than half. And graduation is up by 21%." These are all remarkable numbers for which he appears to be taking credit on behalf of his organization.

I am totally fine with that.


Could someone verify any of this for me? I'm really not trying to be a pain in the butt, but I can't independently verify these numbers on any government website.
