I wish this were actually surprising but its not. Its the new spoiled, privileged American way. Obviously the blame is with the parents. Can you imagine if you tried to tell parents “back in the day” that you didn’t eat the free fucking lunch the school gave you? That’s a paddlin’.
“So you sit there and watch the kids, and you know they’re hungry at the end of the day, and that led to some behavior and some lack of attentiveness. … The program didn’t even make it through the school year after students repeatedly complained about the small portions and apples and pears went from the tray to the trash untouched.”
Just absolutely the dumbest stuff I’ve read. You think maybe, just maybe, if you at your fucking apple you wouldn’t be complaining about the portion size? If you give me a feast and I throw away everything but the after dinner mint, I guess I can complain about portion size.
And the douchey administrator saying how attentiveness suffered so they had to cut the program. Someone take some damn responsibility. Either send a letter home telling the parents their kids are shits and they need to straighten out and eat their vegetables or take it out on the teachers. Quitting the program is such a cop out. If the state gives you food it shouldn’t make you fat. Kids are idiots and you can’t let them dictate your policies simple as that.
