Want a free lunch? Take a seat at your local school cafeteria.
A new federal program is giving Florida’s public schools a way out of verifying whether students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.
The solution: expand subsidized meals to include all students whether they can afford to pay or not.
I’m no socialist, but I like the idea of just including lunch for all students in the cost of education. I doubt if it’s a large percentage of the overall cost of education, it reduces paperwork, and it treats everyone the same.
