Broke-Ass Teaching Moment: Kansas City Public Schools Free Lunch Life Lesson

KMBC and a realization that the American economy is fundamentally changing . . . For the worse: Students in the Kansas City School District will be able to eat free breakfast and lunch starting in the fall.

In fairness, just about everybody in the district was getting free lunches anyhoo and these meals might be one of the very few bright spots for the KCPS amid talk that test scores are lower this year.

Glad that the bottom 99%s income has risen so much the past 20 years.

Hope Green takes some of his "consultant" buddies and other folks looking for free meals to these instead of $100 dinners at the Bristol.
Leadership by example.

Can we come in and eat too? I need a free lunch and don't mind going to school.

It takes a really big government to take over the responsibility of a mother and father.

May the tax payers please be allowed to purchase and eat their own groceries before being forced to buy means for all the bastard kids?

the School Board should not authorize purchases of alcohol on Green's KCMSD credit card. The State of Missouri government prohibits alcohol purchases on the State's dime, why should we as KC taxpayers authorize alcohol purchases on the KCMSD dime? Better keep those credit card receipts with the itemized bill, because the Sunshine Law Requests are coming. And Green should be made to personally repay every dime he spent on alcohol.

That could eat up half of his salary. Which would bring it down to a reasonable rate of pay.

Fyi parents. Looking at the percentage of students on free or reduced lunch is a great indicator on the quality of the district

Free lunch, free breakfast, food stamps, backpacks of food to take home, free cell phones, free rent, free health care, free coats in the winter time, free air conditioners from Bishop Sullivan.

We need a big permanent underclass. It's job security for to do-gooder organizations.

When successful, hardworking people move to the metro area, they don't seem to choose to live in KCMO school district. I propose a federal study to figure out why.

There is no truth to the rumor that the KC Public Feeding Service has stopped its sideline of teaching kids to read and write.

These kids' great-grandchildren will still be poor and eating free lunches.

@7:29 Do you have somebody else for the job? You fuckheads do this every two years. You chase out our superintendent and then two weeks later bitch about the fact that we have had a different superintendent every two years. We have much bigger problems in the district than worrying about whether the executives have a beer at lunch.

Why stop there? What about free Nikes and iPads for all the lil coons too? This is what momma coon has taught them; let whitey pay for everything. We be entitled.
