Schools aren't the same as they used to be. Used to take a secretary and a Principal, now the administrtors almost out number the teachers.
I got sentenced to two weeks of table washing when I was 8 for stealing a nickel milk. Lunch lady said it was bullshit, and let me go to recess. Principal did not like me very well, a trend that would continue through college.
We have been trying to get a weekend food program started for the grade school. Lots of kids with shitty parents who buy drugs, booze and smartphones instead of food for their kids. We are trying to get a program together to give these kids some food for the weekend, they come to school on Monday pretty thin in the skin, all the food they get is at school during the week.
Not sure how to get it going and make sure the kids that get it that need it. Some well off families take advantage of the programs out of cheapness and laziness.
