@ scamp- I was stating a opinion and giving examples. Read the last sentence of my quote. She addresses me with her opinion and I address her with mine. Never once calling her out. And as far as your knight in shining armor complex. Which is not the first time you have done it to people or the rest of the forum mafia that follows you. I could see her coming back and saying something about my tag line, but for you to jump in and call me out is not only pathetic, but sad.

Yes , I agree that this cycle of people misusing the welfare system must be corrected . The first step in correcting this is feeding our children and teaching them how to eat healthy . Some how along the way a generation has misused the system & neglected the kids , it is like everyone owes them something . feeding the kids and teaching them how to eat properly will help brake the chain of obesity and teach them how to be responsible for their own well being . In my kids school there is a program where they bring in different fruits and veggies for the kids to try and to introduce them to the healthier foods . Our parents grew up with fresh foods but the next generation grew up with the processed and fast food . Now we see how harmful all of that is and need to correct it . TEACH THE KIDS HOW TO BE BETTER & THEY WILL SUCCEED !!!!

@Fred

You should stick with your tagline ("Nothing interesting to say at this time") before you insult people. How presumptuous of you to think that rabbit didn't have her priorities straight when she decided private schools were too expensive and chose to home school instead. You are out of touch with reality if you think everyone could afford private schools with a little sacrifice.

I have mixed feelings about the free lunch program. Once more than 80% of the students qualify, the entire school gets free lunch. While I don't want any kids to go hungry, we are teaching them to get things for free and to waste.

Every child must get everything that is provided. They are free to throw away anything that they don't want. Often kids just drink the chocolate milk for breakfast and throw everything else away. My son was appalled by this and took the food that was to be thrown away and distributed it to the male athletes so that they could double-up on breakfast. At 6'1" and 140 lbs. he could afford the calories. His teacher sent him to the principal's office for theft. That food was supposed to go into the trash. My mother often said that wasting food was a sin. Although I never told him that, he still got that message. That food get at least go to the food bank where scraps are fed to the pigs which then go to slaughter a couple of times per year providing meat to food bank recipients. I'm not a huge carnivore but providing meat a couple of times per year does not seem excessive to me.

When I was a kid my mom didn't provide a lunch or money for me. They noticed at school and let me work for my lunch by helping out in the cafeteria. I thought it was fantastic. 10 minutes of work at lunch or before or after school would teach kids to work for what they have and the school could use it. It might lead to more self-efficacy and pride in the school. Almost every night the school cleans graffiti in our bathrooms for two hours. If students cleaned it up, it might stem the graffiti. Everyone hates to see their hard work ruined.

I've been told that we can't have kids work because it will set them apart and stigmatize them. It's sad that a little hard work can lead to embarrassment rather than pride.

And yes, I wholeheartedly intended that tone. Call me cold, cruel, whatever. Feed the need and the need grows. It's always the way.

Meanwhile, the number of people who can afford corn flakes for their kids approaches 100%.

Maybe if social services knocked on a few doors to inquire to lazy ass parents about their hungry kids instead of sending me a nasty note saying my lunches are too nice we wouldn't be teaching 400 kids that if you're too fucking lazy to feed your kids breakfast that's cool - someone else will do it.

I personally knew people with nice cars and electronics and full liquor cabinets who "couldn't afford" breakfast for their kids. We are all going to have to live with generations of useless Roberts.

average DAY school tuition for private school in my area without fees (which are assessed on all families) ranges from $24K to $30K.

per child. per year.

i believe the point here is that even with working multiple jobs, and making sacrifices, the cost of a private school education may *still* be beyond what some parents are able to provide. that does not mean those parents don't have the right to complain about the state of public schools.

@ rabbit- being able to "afford" a private school. It's all relevant and what is important and what is not. My cousin and his wife both work 2 jobs to send their kids to a private boarding school. Do they take vacations no. Do they eat out? No. Do they buy themselves new clothes? No. They do without a lot and a lot of things most people would never give up for anything. They make great sacrifices because they believe their kids education is the most important thing. But isn't that what life is about? making sacrifices for what you feel is important. When I was in private school one of the students fathers cleaned the school grounds 7 days a week as a second job to make sure his son could go to private school. I do commend you for homeschooling your kids instead of sending them to public school and complaining the whole time.

the public school system is a small part & yet the most important one in the USA . Our county is broken & mismanaged on every level . Families now need to have two working parents just to get by , Inflation is way out of hand , children are left unsupervised while parents have to work . And yet we wonder why crime rates are so high . way too much of our tax money is sent over seas to help impoverished nations while that is what the USA is becoming . How can we continue do this ? Our own citizens are starving and there are homeless families . We need a government like Switzerland , they take care of all their citizens . They have excellent schools....low crime rates....healthcare...and even retirement housing . So yes it can be done . This may sound crazy but eventually there may be a revolution and that will be the only way to bring in a new government and start anew . Now I am in no way a radical or heavy in to politics , but just look @ history & you will see how change was made ......all the way back to Boston Tea party . Sounds scary but how else can this all be fixed ?
