    Reading should be a joy…and not something required in order to eat!…funding should be apportioned according to need not merit!

    Linking reading proficiency with food programs misses the mark entirely. Don’t punish children with withholding lunch. What a mean and evil thing to propose!

    Children who are malnourished struggle to learn. Policies like these effectively create a permanent underclass.
