Paterson has to have after school programs and activities. administration and teachers have to have more consideration to children's needs. Why I say that my daughter attends Rosa parks school she had turned in her lunch form which it was never processed at the time my daughter went to school under the assuption that she was going to get free lunch well she went to office to tell them that she was hungry and thought that her free Lunch was going to be available and they said no it's right here we are going to process form now she told them well I'm hungry they told her what do you want me to do. Not even crackers they offered her. She came back home crying saying she had bad headache that she didn't eat anything all day.. I say..because of things like this a child can discourage themselves from focusing in school. If school surpose to be a child's second home, why aren't they making sure there children are being fed.

I agree with you, but, in defense of some of the teachers and administrators, the simple fact is that some of these children have terrible parents--it's a two-way street, plain and simple.
