I know beeks like to pick on food for the poor, but what about all the other thousands and thousands of dollars the schools waste?
our state just coughed up millions for the schools. guess where it went. hint: it didn't go to the schools.
the oregon public employees pension plan is the 3rd most expensive in the country with guaranteed returns, increases, and matching fund. no matter what the market or economy does, they are guarnteed 8% increase. hey...that's better than the original 12%.
god bless the unions!
to fund them, we cut teacher and hours....but it's all about the children....
if states want to do lunches, let them. states tend to be more careful with their own money, the above example not withstanding. it's when federal dollars are pumped in and there is incentive for FW&A.
it might be true that kids don't concentrate as well if they are hungry. define hungry. + one day of not concentrating is not going to trash the school year. mom and dad will remember to pay next time or will learn to pack a lunch.
