It doesn't work. Almost all socialists in the West have converted to Fascism. It is a far more subtle and effective, and at the end of the day, you get the same result.

    The only effective solution to the education crisis in this country is to get rid of government schools and replace them with nothing. Unleash the power of the market to create a vibrant competitive education industry.
    I think that could produce great results if we eased into it correctly. I feel like so many people are afraid to even talk of possible solutions to things such as this that don't involve total government control.

    I've been struggling with my 4yo over her breakfast/lunch for pre-K (at a public elementary school) and saw this story last night--it really upset me, the lightbulb went off and I realized why the menu is so effed up, particularly breakfast. I'm sorry, but sending little kids to class hopped up on sugar with no protein is just a BAD IDEA.

    Here's today's lunch menu at her school (oddly, one of the better days):
    Pork Roast - 3g (3 grams? That's all?)
    Zesty lemon broccoli - 2g
    Cooked Carrots - 8g
    Brown Rice - 37g
    Whole grain breadstick - 13g
    Every day there's assorted fresh fruit/veggies and of course milk.

    I pack her lunches, but she wants to eat what the other kids are eating, and her teachers assured her that what they eat is healthy too. I don't think she *actually* wants the food though, she just wants to fit in. I let her buy cafeteria food one day, and she came home starving because she only drank the milk and juice for breakfast, and all she ate of her lunch was carrot sticks and fruit. ::sigh:: Add this to the fact that she's ahead of the class and getting into trouble because she's bored...we're looking into a different school.

    LOL, my school lunches were too, at least some of the time. Today was one of the best days on the menu this month--I'd probably eat that, minus the brown rice. Otherwise there's the usual popcorn chicken, hot dogs, pizza, chicken tenders, "pizza max sticks w/marinara" (??) and occasional classics like chicken casserole, spaghetti, or salisbury steak. What really got me about today's menu is the TINY portion allotted to protein vs. the rice.

    Yeah, I'm getting a lot of "get them uppity negras outta my gub'mint! Of, by an' fer the white folks, just like the Founding Fathers intended!" vibes out of some of the posters in this thread. Creepy, creepy, you guys.

    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
