    Hungry kids don’t learn.
    I’m a classroom teacher.
    Before teaching math/science I need to feed kids first.
    They are active kids, so they are healthy but also hungry.
    The rules do not allow these kids to receive enough food from the lunch/breakfast program, so I spend enough of my money to have food in my classroom.

    Federal rules are not helping.
    Ivory tower attitudes are not helping.
    Both Democrats and Republicans display this attitude.

    @Jase99
    I am feeding kids every week because they are hungry.
    You are citing statistics.
    You are not helping.
    The national rules are not helping.

    We have hungry kids in our schools.
    The national rules are not helping, but making it worse.
    These kids are active and healthy, but hungry.
    Stop micromanaging please.

    Laugh through the tears.
    The pain of learning is a major part of family life.
    No pain, no gain?

    It says something that we just pass on failure.

    Medical collections are part of this problem.
    The hospital-doctor-insurance maze seems to lead straight to collections.

    In Colorado compromise has failed.
    Voter initiatives will be on the ballot which will result much stricter limitations.
    They are likely to pass.

    Legalization is here to stay.
    But it does bring more abuse by those under 18.
    Strange to hear the denial as the abuse of THC and alcohol both become a life long problem for a significant percent of the population.

    The founding fathers had many deep faults also, including dramatic personal arguments.
    The lesson from history is great things happen when we reach compromise forged out of the fire of debate.
