Citizen Jesse has some very good points in his comment as he voted no for this legislation, but here's the problem with the ideas in those comments. Number one: Not slapping a politically correct Band-Aid on to the problem. The problem is people. Not the school system, nor the educational institution as a whole. People. Lunch shaming does not come from schools, per se, but from people, adults, who make children feel badly. Children are often not of the mind to speak up about how they are shamed or bullied. Therefore, it is up to the school principal and administration to provide public service announcements to the students and to the adults that poverty is not something to be bullied or shamed. How about providing free breakfast and lunch? As a taxpayer, I would pay for that. Number twi: shrinking class sizes. Sorry, Jesse, but this is a strawman. It has nothing to do with shaming children at lunch. If you want to shrink class sizes, then encourage more of your friends and young adults to become teachers. Number three: regarding the system. There truly are a lot of rules and regulations, but it still boils down to people: People who have superiority complexes; people who have sometimes sadistic personalities that they use to take it out on weaker or more submissive teachers and students; people who are not provided skills on leadership or on management. Fix these things, and you fix the system. The answer is education, education of the adults who work at schools, adults who manage schools, and the adults who make school regulations. Whether those regulations are from the federal government, state government, local municipality, or the school itself, everything always boils down to the people involved.
