Superintendent: Schools following procedure on lunch charge cut-off date

School lunch in Springfield has been a topic of conversation on social media this past week, with residents claiming students have had to go without lunch, or had food thrown out.

  1. Whatever happened to personal responsibility? Pack a lunch, pay for a hot lunch or apply for free lunch for your kid. End of story.

    If Americans didn't hate children, your proposal might work, 3:01. See the movie, "Where to Invade Next," to see how students in other countries are treated-- Finland (best educational system in the world): no homework; France: four-course, hour-long lunch hours with meals served at table by staff; 25 countries: free college education. It looks like we need an attitude adjustment here. Wouldn't hurt to start in Springfield.

    1. YES! Someone else will pay to feed my kids so I can spend more money on drugs, alcohol, cell phones, TV's, and my car!

      Sign me up for this plan!

    2. Chuck, you need to catch on. "Where to Invade Next" is another propaganda piece from Michael Moore. Moore has been repeatedly discredited for fact fudging and misrepresentation. Beyond that, it would be cold day in hell I'd pay for movie ticket that bankrolls one of the 2nd amendment's worst attackers.

    3. Chuck, I agree that we are not at the level of other "civilized" countries. However, I will bring us back to personal responsibility. Americans are raising spoiled kids who only eat what they like -- french fries, chicken nuggets, pasta without sauce, etc. Only when the majority of parents here get their kids over their picky-eating habits, we'll be able to serve the typical french lunch of artisanal baguette, cucumber salad with cream fraiche, veal sauteed in olives and broccoli, goat cheese, gâteau de semoule fait maison au caramel.

      Almost all the above: I suggest you read Joe Pageant's book, "Deer Hunting with Jesus." It's about how he married a 15-year-old when he was 17 (with both sets of parents' permission), eventually matured enough to leave town for the rest of his working years, returned to live out his retirement and was appalled to find how all his old friends had suffered tremendously under what they considered was "normal." But then he was the only one of his crowd who ever got outside the box.

      Who on this thread knows what it means for the likely success in school of a child whose parent is female, single, under 20 and lacking a high school education? Who here knows how many of that type of parent Springfield has? Who here feels that they don't have to care about that? Welcome to "Deer Hunting with Jesus."

      "Where to Invade Next" has a message for all of us.

    5. Having the government taking care of everyone's every need worked so well for the American Indian right Chuck?? Maybe just maybe with a good hardy free breakfast under their belt , they'll be able to get of the cell phones that the government gave them and get a paper route. Hopefully they will be able to save up enough to purchase their own bicycle before they retire! Get with it Chuck, nothing is free.

      I strongly urge you to spend a week teaching in a Springfield grade school, 4:08. You really don't understand public education.

    7. More foie gras in the schools...that's what I say. And would they really let me teach for a week? The government has essentially never lived up to the promises made to Native Americans...they have a right to be bitter...unlike the average commentor on this blog...myself included.

      That's not a question; that's a reaction.

  3. Dogluvrinvt: I agree with your original comment; personal responsibility in this country has gone down the toilet; heaven forbid that parents should be in charge of looking out for the welfare of their own children!
