    There ain't no free lunch. Cut the moochers off.

    It's the damn teachers' fault. If they'd just volunteer for the summer and chip in for the A/C too, problem solved.

    But they obviously don't care about the kids.

    Once we get rid of tenure, all these problems will go away.

    So don't worry your sweet little head about it.

    Give the kids vouchers so they can choose their lunch.

    Ship them to farms in the Midwest and west to replace the low skilled, low wage illegal aliens that we should march across the dessert back to Mexico. You don't have to pay the kids to pick crops, just call it an internship.

    Don't forget to sell them if they ask for more.

    Or we could just tell the parents to show some fucking responsibility for raising their kids.

    Nah, can't have that…

    It's interesting to me how these kinds of discussions conflate actual hunger (i.e., going without eating) with what's called "food insecurity." The latter only rarely involves the former. Not that I want to experience either one, mind you ...

    In your world, does telling someone to do something meet with 100 percent success?

    Actually, you're absolutely right. You can't have it every case. In millions of cases. The kids will be malnourished.

    So, knowing that glazed donuts won't fall from the sky and some parents won't take responsibility, what's your proposal? More bitching?

    Re: the conflation of "food insecurity" with "going hungry" ... see what I mean?

    I know this sounds callous but reading the thread title, I thought this was going to be a Poin-files account of a science teacher in Iowa stalking some kid in a summer rec league.
