    So this bully wants to steal their lunch money if they don’t meet reading standards? This is beyond reprehensible.

    Arkansas has poor literacy because of policies like this that undermine success. This politician is a weak, old,ignorant man and does not respect children or education. AR – Vote him OUT!!

    The links between Nutrition and the ability to learn are well documented. This is guaranteed to contribute to student failure and an act of sublime cruelty.

    This is unacceptable…if children are hungry they cannot concentrate or learn. Find a solution which will not damage the child, for they are the future.

    I’m a great reader, so I would have not caused funding to drop. However, if they had tied it to math, I would have been hungry every day. What a crock.

    Denying food is a form of abuse.

    This is APPALLING. Children cannot learn when they are hungry. Maybe he should talk to people who actually work wiyh and understand children.
