That's the rub ain't it? Bush's Sec of Education went on the John Stewart show and the first thing they talked about was the meal program. She
stated that the Dep Ed doesn't do the nutritional programming. That is done by the Dep Ag.
Every state, less Utah, has at least one "drop out factory" where 50% of the students do not graduate High School. I've railed before about the
bloated Public Education system and how it is an abysmal failure.
This is why I find the whole being upset at kids not getting a school lunch a little absurd. Public education in the US is a broken Buick. People
are demanding we fix the broken tail-light of a Ford. If education was overhauled to include a nutrition program for student success then I wouldn't
have a problem with it. It is not, however. It has become a "feed the children" program, notice the emotional arguments provided in this thread.
The education advice I recieved was in a college macroeconomics class: "if you can sell something you don't need to be here."
So given that the basic hull of public education, the education part, has shattered we're arguing about rearranging the deck chairs on a sinking
As such, if people start looking into the innerworkings of what comprises public education because some kids are skipping a few meals and realize it's
all for naught then that's a good thing.
For the time being I really wouldn't care if they canceled all school meal programs. These 25 kids received a solid life lesson.
