And according to the powers that be...All is well!
Then, summer comes and in many public schools ANYONE can come in off the street and request a meal. Very few, if any, can be turned away.. (We cannot have anyone starving over summer vacation because, as we know, food is soooo scarce in the mid-west during July and August.)
Still, the powers that be believe...All is well!
So the last school year ended and some 7 weeks later a new year has begun with new rules...
Now UNIVERSAL Breakfast is for students and their homeroom teachers only. If you are an art teacher, gym teacher, computer teacher, teacher's aide etc. you cannot have a breakfast from the UNIVERSAL Breakfast program because you do not have children in front of you during the said breakfast period. Now, I have never eaten the breakfast from school, though for me it would be FREE, but how preposterous is it that one teacher is able to have a FREE breakfast while another has to pay $2.00 all the while the kids are taking their food and dumping it in the garbage.
And those in charge...take another sip of their Kool-aid for breakfast and proclaim...All is well!
