It has come to the parents attention that the schools want to call parents DEAD BEATS! Well what happened to NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND.It should go for hot lunches to. But the school would rather throw the food in the garbage then feed the children. Times are tough and the schools want to upgrade everything but the children's lunches. It's hard for children to concentrate on nothing but a cheese sandwich.I don't see the big dealthey are making over lunch and kid's eating free.But the schools rather feed the dogs,cats and birds.They throw out enough food everyday to feed the kids that they say need to pay.Then on fridays they send home weekend warrior bags with some of the children for the weekend i think they should take some of that worry about children NOT eating on the weekends and put it to the children during the week.Every child that attends school should get a HOT MEAL everyday of school NO matter if they have money in the account or not.So before the school publsh things in the news paper about DEAD BEAT parents they should take a hard long look in the mirror.Some parents work very hard to provide for their kids and they make to much money to be on the free or reduced lunch program but they are struggling to stay up above water cause everything is so expensive these days and because of this the kids eat cheese sandwiches instead of a hot meal.We are suppose to be a community and work togather but instead the schools are putting programs togather that works for them but,apperently are not working for the community.The parents are not in school but when we were in scool we ate free lunches,HOT LUNCHES. If you didn't have money you still ate.We never went without a hot lunch and we all know times were harder back then. So i think schools should adjust their programs they make to work for all the people in the community not just the school board and always remember NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND..THANK YOU A CONCERNED CITZEN

I think the public needs to adjust. Have you heard of birth control??? I am sick to death of paying my tax money for the above attitude--have kids and expect others to support them--what kind of reasoning is that? Many of these parents have never worked or are working minimum wage jobs. What kind of person keeps having kids when they know they can't afford it? The days of the free ride needs to be over!!! There is no longer any money for those blood suckers. Yes, I sound rough and hard hearted--no, just realistic. I've had it with these irresponsible scum bags!!! By the way, the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND program refers to grades and testing (academics)--not hot lunches. Also, I never got a free lunch at school--my parents had to pay and they were by no means wealthy. Of course, they believed in paying for their own children.

^But there is money for the stupid fucking sports here lol. Fuck education. And tough love teaches people nothing, it is about the kids here. Hey shit happens with kids, you can't take back the past. You must have had it made your whole life. You are way over your head if you are bashing this as you are paying their life through with YOUR taxes thing, have you not thought about what else your tax money is being wasted on? But yet you would rather bash people around you in need, and let the other wasted end of it go unnoticed. Maybe one day you will be in that position, probably not, nobody ever has heard of the word EMPATHY these days.

Empathy meaning I have to pay for not only my child's lunch but yours too? Because you don't want to work? No offense but how are we supposed to teach kids responsibility when we can't even handle responsibility ourselves? I understand that times are hard, but that doesn't mean I have to use all my hard earned money to pay for everything your child needs.

Your not the only one paying taxes so chill out. Im sure your gonna heat a return at the end of the year.and yes you need to think where else your tax money goes.I agree there is alot of deadbeat people that take advantage of the mighty link card public aid that are capable of working and are to lazy to provide for their family. But I believe the state has gone overboard the way they are handling things.like the first comment says why throw away the food to animals when hungry kids could be eating it makes no since to me. And yes karma will catch up with every wrong soul on this earth. When your time is up to meet the big guy upstairs he will decide whatyou deserve after all your actions. It is a sick world because the human race is destroying it. Now my last thought is money is the root of all evil.people kill rob lie all kinds of erin doings for it people really should open their eyes and see how the world is falling apart .

Do you really think that you've never had taxes help you in a manner that's not in line with someone elses views? Taxes help you, me, and everyone around you. My taxes, our taxes, help you and me everyday whether you're an asshole or not and I'm ok with that.
