Thought for the day:
. . . Schools taking on the responsibility of feeding ‘the poor kids’ will not change their circumstances. It will simply mask the neglect that is taking place in some situations and free up a bit of discretionary spending money for others who are willing to take advantage of a programme that wouldn’t actually be intended for them.
Until we change the policy settings to rid ourselves of the ‘entitlement’ culture that seems so entrenched among some, we as a country will continue to produce generations of young people who are genuinely mystified as to why they aren’t receiving even more handouts than they already are.
This is the conclusion of an email to Whaleoil from a school principal.
It gives a very different perspective on feeding children at schools debate.
