  • School lunches shouldn't exist...

    Its the parents responsibility to take care of their child. This includes feeding them. Schools shouldn't have to take on that responsibility and neither should children. Parents have the overall responsibility so thats their job. Teaching parents that their kids are entitled to everything will set them up on a bad path later on.

  • Yes, students should have to pay for school lunch.

    Ok, so, the two that oppose thus far (WolfLover and anonymous) say that it is unfair for those who can't afford it, but in all reality the school HAS to provide lunch for those that cannot afford it. Also put together Saand's argument and zebzealous' argument and Bam!, you have mine.

  • Why shouldn't they?

    I'm sorry but not everything in life is free. School, like my teachers told me, is supposed to be a practice environment for working life, thats why we have to get there on time, dress appropriately and pay for our lunches. The world doesn't care about your financial problems harsh but true.

  • It instills the value of money in childrens minds.

    It teaches students that nothing in life is free. If they want something they will have to both work for and pay for it. They are not just going to be handed everything on a silver platter. Nobodys born with a silver spoon in their mouths and there is not this unlimited supply of money flying out of their pockets. I believe in many instances the price should come down so kids can afford it easier but it should still remain in place. If a student forgets their money as somebody on the opposition stated and as i had done many times myself Thats just too bad . Going without your lunch because you forgot your money teaches you responsibility because you do it one time you probably wont keep doing it again and you learn its important you go with what you need for the day and this principle will carry through into adulthood with jobs family ect as well.

  • Kids shouldn't pay for school lunch because teachers say to eat healthy and don't skip lunch

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa a a a a a a a a a aa a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a aa a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a

  • No, students shouldn't pay for school lunches

    My opinion is no she's students should have to pay for school lunches because some families can't afford buying lunch every single day so they shouldn't have to pay for school lunch like why should they know they should not some families are just too poor to keep paying their children's lunch at school or pack your own lunch also they couldn't because students already have enough going on as it is what happens if their money and they forgot their money one day what happens if the parents can afford it it would be so much harder on their children to be forced to pay their own school lunches

  • They shouldnt have to pay

    Some families cant affored buying lunch every single day S o they shouldnt have to pay for a school lunch like why should they. And some people think they should because to make money for trips and things like that but i mean they could just do fundraising for that.

  • Becasuse they are not as healthy than home luch

    Children spend a significant chunk of their day in school, eating up to two major meals of the day away from home. With lunch time universal in school children, researchers took up the challenge of assessing whether home lunches or those provided by school cafeterias are healthier for kids.

    Two studies, one from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and another from the Baylor College of Medicine, revealed that neither bringing a packed lunch from home nor opting for cafeteria food is actually healthy. The Hopkins study involved six- to eight-year-olds while the Baylor study had subjects from kindergarten to eighth grade, but both led to the same results, unfortunately highlighting problems with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.

  • No, they should not.

    I know it has already been mentioned before, but I'm going to say it anyway. Some families are just too poor to keep paying for their children's lunch at school or pack their own lunch. Also, if you went to the same school that I did, you wouldn't want to pay for that crap anyway.

  • Of course not!

    Students already have enough going on as it is. What happens if they forget their money one day? What happens if the parents can't afford it?
    It would be so much harder on the children to be forced to pay for their own school lunches.
    On the other hand, however, it could be okay because if someone didn't want to pay, they could bring their own lunch from home.
    So I guess it works both ways.
