It's a function of education to keep kids alive, not to mention focused.
No... it's not at all. The function of education is to educate kids.
Their parents have a responsibility to see that their kids are fed and their health requirements are met.
The school should simply eliminate all the POS crap and require parents to pay.
Failure to pay will the a disciplinary infraction against the parent; the student may be suspended, and child protective services may be contacted.
There is no right to care for a child, if you are not capable of doing so.
