    Yes, because kids are benefiting now under socialized schools. They're the educational equivalent of the post office.

    Sorry, I've don't get that reference, not being in the US. Post offices the world over are in the do-do however, unsurprising since most business is now done electronically.

    Sorry, didn't mean to be obtuse. My contention is that our current socialized school system isn't serving kids well as it is, and in my opinion it is failing for the same reason that any socialized institution get's the pants beat off it when facing competition from the private sector.

    IMO private systems will fail in places like D.C. also.

    I like how liberals are using the "they can bring their own lunch if they don't like it" argument. Wait, I thought the poor couldn't do "insert topic" because they were poor? Oh the hypocrisy! I love it!

    L.A. schools' healthful school lunches panned by LAUSD students - latimes.com

    For months before introducing the new fare, the district held community taste tests and collected 300,000 comments — 75% of which were positive, Binkle said.

    But Barrett said the debut was a "disaster." Participation plunged by more than 13%, he said. About two-fifths of the loss was tied to 99 schools that temporarily resumed requiring

    snip..

    Students have embraced about half of the new fare, according to Binkle; the salads and vegetarian tamales in particular have been popular.

    But some students said they still are not eating — including those who liked the food at the taste tests.

    Andre Jahchan, a 16-year-old sophomore at Esteban Torres High School, said the food was "super good" at the summer tasting at L.A. Unified's central kitchen. But on campus, he said, the chicken pozole was watery, the vegetable tamale was burned and hard, and noodles were soggy.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This is amazing. I love it.

    I'd certainly question that assertion. In the UK the privatisation of the railways, British Airways, postal service, energy suppliers and steel industry resulted in poorer service to customers, widespread job losses and benefits only to share holders.

    Re: LAUSD Students Roundly Reject Healthier School Lunch Menu

    After reading through the posts I would like to see the lunch program done away with. Saves taxpayers money and for those that don't bring their lunch get less calories .

    It is amazing so many of us made it through school without such programs. There are other means/programs for the "poor" to get food for their kids and provide lunches.

    Interesting. I'll have to look into those examples.
