I'm thinking the food is probably better than the kids are making out. Schools don't need Drama Departments to have little Drama Queens (and little Drama Kings). When I was in High School, the food was rarely great, but it was always edible and reasonably tasty. I think these kids are just being cranky because they can impress their friends. All kidding aside, I remember a hilarious lunch hour when one kid commented on the instant chocolate pudding, saying, "It all comes out of the same can." As soon as the double meaning of "can" became apparent, it was a rollicking good time as the remark spread across the lunchroom.

I remember (early 60s) that our local lunch ladies planned and cooked our lunches. They were always pretty darn good, like food home. It was when the Dems began to interfere in school lunch programs that the food became really crappy and institutional, prepackaged cr#p. When I saw what my kids were offerred, they took home lunches. My youngest does till this day.

Don't change the subject. The federal government has NO authority to insert itself into this matter.

I agree with most of what you say nullify but I'm embarrassed to say my state takes more from the federal gov't than we give. Do you think we should get rid of public education?

The National School Lunch Act, enacted in 1946, provides funding to schools for food programs. It isn't required and schools don't have to take the money. But if they do, there are guidelines to what can be served.

What's wrong with that?

Jake, nothing is wrong with it. It was only wrong when a half black/half white guy became president. It's the black half that kills people the majority of people who come to this forum.

I think Nullify is saying the federal role in education is unconstitutional and everybody should eat their twinkies at home or in private school

Along these lines, Laura Bush has supported numerous government and private sector efforts to promote reading and education. She has been a strong advocate and defender against critics of the Administration's No Child Left Behind Act signed by the President in January 2002, providing federal funds to the local level to recruit new teachers, improve teacher training, or raise teacher pay.But she was white

The states are more than welcome to set up schools and run them how they want. All powers not given to the Federal govt our left for the states as long as it isn't against the Constitution

Public education has led us to the brink of disaster. With trillions and trillions of dollars sunk into teaching American children for the past 100 years about how to govern themselves, it is clear now that it has been a complete failure.

Parents should be responsible for educating their own children. If that were the case maybe they would not be breeding like cockroaches and making a living by stealing from their neighbors through government to raise them.

I don't know why this is so hard. I want children to be fed and housed and clothed. ITS NOT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS JOB TO DO SO. If the state you are living in wants to do those things then go right ahead.

What's wrong with that? The question should be what's wrong with YOU when you think that a law or legislative act can over ride the Constitution.

Yeah, sure. Everyone who disagrees with the feds overreach is a racist.

KNEW IT! Out comes the race card.

FYI, Regressive - my best friend, godfather to my eldest daughter is blacker than Obama - his ancestors were actually slaves (oh, there's almost certainly some white in him - virtually every slave descendant has a Democrat rapist somewhere back there).

I would spit in Obama's eye if given the chance - not because he has African "blood" (except for melanin, not really any different from mine). Because he is a would-be tyrant that follows in the footsteps of other tyrants, of all colors - white (Hitler, Stalin), yellow (Mao, Pol Pot), brown (Castro, Chavez), black (Mugabe, Idi Amin).

In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
