    A book is a gift you can open again and again. A library with a real librarian is the door to the world of 21st century learning & achievement for ALL students. “If you have a garden & a library you have everything you need.” Cicero

    This man has lost his mine. Reading is the hardest skill that children have to learn. To deny many of them the one meal that they may be getting a day is totally insane.

    Right. Take lunches away from children who may not have had breakfast, and may not be able to have dinner, and see how their reading improves. Such cruelty and stupidity! This guy must be a good friend of Betsey DeVos.

    WHAT. AN. IDIOT!!! :-( Hungry children can’t learn! This is just PUNISHING the children because they are poor & disadvantaged - like it’s their fault! :(

    My mom and her parents and siblings are from Arkansas. This legislation makes me sick. It is not worthy of the people from Arkansas.


    The legislator who proposed this should be horsewhipped from the assembly.

    This is nuts. Hungry children can’t learn. If anything, the funding for food should be increased when children are having difficulty learning.

    Taking food away will only make it harder for the kids to learn. Punish the lazy teachers not the kids!!!

    It has been documented by a number of studies that kids who are NOT hungry learn better and have a better school experience than kids who are. Who on earth wants to punish children into studying? Cruel and unbelievable!
