Home schooling! Pay parents to teach their own kids. Currently there are many many parents that would like to stay home and educate their kids, but when you homeschool your own kids, there is no financial help. You have to buy all your own books and supplies, plus you need 1 parent home full time to teach the child. Currently the government gives an average of $50 per day per student to the schools. The government could lighten its burden by offering parents say $35 per child to stay home and learn, thereby saving the taxpayers $15 per child. Assuming that 10% pull their kids out of school to home school them because of this program, and we are talking billions in savings. Most families have 2 kids which means a parent could stay home and get $70 per day to educate their own children while helping lighten the budget on education. Not alot of money, but if there is another working parent in the house, it works out nicely.
