Free and reduced lunch.
Students across the country face the prospect of “lunch shaming” when their parents don’t pay whatever lunch bill they owe for their children under the free and reduced lunch program.
When government assumed the role of feeding children, should we be surprised that people find other uses for their money than feeding their children? And if the government is going to feed the children, should it not feed the children when their parents don’t do their part?
Is there a better way to handle the payment issue besides not feeding children, one that isn’t too draconian? (I don’t like the abuse of govt power.) I’m open to ideas.
