Skip to comments.Christie Proposes Education Changes (incl after-school dinner)
Posted on 01/24/2014 9:55:38 AM PST by C19fan
In Governor Christies efforts to solve New Jerseys education problems, yesterday he visited the Dudley Family School in Camden to discuss some of his plans for school programs in the Garden State.
One of the big education announcements that he made in Camden is plans for an after-school dinner program for kids in six of the citys schools. Research has shown that when kids are hungry, that affects not just their academic performance, but also their behavior.

NJ isn’t the first.
Why don’t they just go ahead and take state control of the children? Bunk them up and be done with it.
Next: After school government nannies to take care of the kids while parent(s) go to the club and go shopping.
Why not? And who needs parents anymore, when we have the State?
Parents can just beget them and forget them.
Life in 2014 is very much different from life 100 years ago and it demands something more for our students. It is time to lengthen both the school day and the school year in New Jersey, Christie said.
Oh, dear. The governor is really sounding like a Democrat there. Governor, please rethink this idea.
Anybody besides me ever read ANTHEM by Ayn Rand and see where this is going?
What it mostly is, is more socialist overreach, big government expansion and intrusion into the family, with food as the bait.
Who will protest the care and feeding of hungry little state owned drones?
In-school meals should be deducted from the parents EBT cards. No need to pay twice for food.
Don’t let this guy kid you. He’s no Republican. He’s an opportunist.
Regardless, if he becomes a Republican candidate, the left will spare no effort to destroy him.
Just an FYI.
They need research to validate what any parent or teacher already knows??????
Oh, that's right. they're not 'experts".
Sheesh, what morons......
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
Kids will NOT be fed properly with just School Breakfast, School Lunch and School Dinner... until such time as government supplies School Cookies-and-Milk-Before-Bed and School Midnight-snack. Only then, will kids be properly nourished.
Too bad we lost such a great presidential candidate...
Dumb question: If the parents refuse to feed the kids, why are they still with the parents?
More Free Stuff.
Here's another one. Why are we giving the parents EBT funds using the number of kids they have as a basis for how much they get if taxpayers are paying to feed the kids from other funds anyway?
The kid’s who are getting the “free” meals parents are almost certainly on food stamps already. Why exactly are the kids needing more free food at school?
Fat kids are always hungry. Their systems have become accustomed to over eating. When they don't get "full" they think they are hungry.
whatever happened to parents feeding their own children? I had breakfast before I left the house and a brown-bag lunch. Often it was peanut butter and jelly. we couldn’t afford anything fancy!
Sorry, can't use peanut butter. Some kids have allergies... Lunch has to be government approved nowadays.
Remember the girl that had her turkey sandwich and fruit confiscated because it didn't meet the new guidelines for school lunches. They asked her why her mom didn't’ love her and gave her government approved chicken nuggets.
Sometimes I just want to march down to DC and tell them to stay out of my refrigerator.
Just like I'm tired of a government that is billions of dollars in the hole telling me how to spend my money.
It's simple: no food advice from fat people and no money advice from broke people.
That is coming soon...
Look for schools to start proposing ‘overnight camps’ once per quarter and growing the idea from there.
If two parents are working, both until late hours, and are in low paid occupations, I can live with helping them. But you know that half of them will be layabouts too lazy to care for their kids, and who want their alcohol or pot and smokes more than they want to see their kids fed through the money they remove from our pockets that finds its way to theirs.
Yep, that's exactly what will happen. When will Republicans learn?
Momma be swappin’ the EBT for drugs.
Got no grub for the chillern....
Can you imagine how bad that crap will taste?
I thought the late school buses had to be canceled for lack of funds, depriving kids who wanted after-school tutoring from getting it?
Now what? They get dinner and have to hitchhike home?
I think most of the comments here miss the mark: Perhaps, Christie is doing this because HE is always hungry.
Now, he can swing by any school in Jersey at dinnertime and snag some chow!
Facilitating neglect. Idiot.
No, but I’ suppose I will have to read that too.
