    Free school lunches for all kids ?

    Post by Angie baby on Sat 13 Jul 2013, 11:31 am

    Free school meals for every primary school pupil? Education Secretary Michael Gove joins the war on packed lunches

    Minister backs 1bn plan to boost attainment through better nutrition.

    Read the full story from the Independent Newspaper, here: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/free-school-meals-for-every-primary-school-pupil-education-secretary-michael-gove-joins-the-war-on-packed-lunches-8704861.html




    As a teacher myself I have often wondered why we draw attention to the poorest kids by feeding them on a voucher system and by doing that creating a two-tier society in schools.

    Kids need to feel as part of one society and not dug out because their parents have less money than others and because of this I feel that Michael Gove's, ( A TORY ), idea has to be a good one.

    What do you think ?

    Sounds like a fantastic idea if I read it right.

    We have to remember though that what the Tories give out with one hand they can also take away again with the other hand.

    I am particularly thinking of the time that Thatcher took the children's free school milk away.

    Excuse the language, but bollocks !

    No Tory government are going to spend that kind of money on free school dinners for every child in Britain.

    The idea is anathema to that kind of rightist ways of thinking.

    Gove is a liar and a chancer and he has the kind of slack mouth that I would never tire of slapping.
