My wife is a teacher at a Santa Ana Elementary School. The low-income students were provided free lunches if the parent filled out a form stating their income. These forms were never verified. The other students were provided lunches for a small charge. Last year, the charge was eliminated. All students at the school now get free lunches. In addition, all students get free breakfasts. In addition to that, all students now get free vegetable snacks. (The kids don't eat many of the snacks, so boxes of them end up in the teachers lounge and then get thrown away) .
Besides the cost issues of feeding an entire school snacks and two meals a day, I'm also concerned with immigrants attitude and how they are being 'trained' to depend on the government for food and not bonding with the family at meal times.
Where do you stand on this issue?
