Changes to School Lunch Program

...School lunches have changed in cost and content. In the united states we all have choices, go right to work out of high school or pursue a higher education, to participate in the political process by voting or choosing not to vote, to eat and drink without thought or live a healthy lifestyle. One choice has been made for the children of America in recent years, the choice of eating a healthy diet, trading in French fries and chicken nuggets for salad bars and organic beef. With the new menu come health benefits but come with additional costs to tax payers. With childhood obesity reaching all time highs president Barack Obama has implemented changes to what is required in the nations cafeterias. “The Healthy, hunger-free kids act, signed by President Barack Obama in 2010, requires all government-subsidized lunch programs to double the amount of fruits and vegetables they serve to children, and serve only whole grains for all grain products” (Allen, 2012) With these new requirements schools are mandated to meet comes additional cost that is not covered by the budget allocated for the school food programs. Allen (2012) found that the changes will take place in 2013-14, will increase the budget for the school program by $3.2 billion, per meal 14 cents, to the already established $11 billion school lunch program. With increased costs and no new funding the additional cost is passed on to the schools, Allen (2012) one school district Shenedehowa’s, lost $23,000 in a...

...been too to profess my desire to act and be on TV. Nothing seemed more important than that. Not school or friends can defer me from that dream. However; my passion acting and TV did terrible for my academic’s. High school- senior year has always been the best year in high school; for me anyways. I was getting selected for plays, short films, debutante and much more. Nothing could mess up my senior year, until my guidance counselor call me into her office. “Lashaunde, we need to talk.” Ms. Ellis said. Her tone was very calm. That was unusually for her, being that was a “loud mouth.” I lashed back with “about what? “Being that she called me away from my rehearsal for debutante practice that I was on my way to. She started to ask me what my plans were for the future. Everyone knew what I wanted to be. Hell, they had me on the morning announcements. I lived for acting and broadcast. “Well when I graduate I plan on moving to New York or California to pursue acting! Duh! ” I said back with attitude. She started to bother me with college question. She told me that this was a big decision and I needed to figure out back up plans. She said “A college degree goes a long way, when you apply yourself.” I always wanted to go to college and I figured I would go one day, just not when I graduated.

...“So That Nobody Has to Go to School If They Don’t Want To” Sipher Roger states throughout his rather drawn out article trying to get his point across. 3 Solid Points: Immature minds can’t make wholesome decisions, more citizens will be on governmental assistance, and it would stunt someone who was destined for greatness. On the monstrous streets of New York is a single child named Antoine. Antoine’s superb mind towers his counterparts and even though he is only in eighth grade, his intellectual abilities troupe those of a higher grade. One day he decides not to attend school because it wasn’t required. Growing up in such a harsh side of town forces him to take on another occupation as a drug dealer and quit school altogether; little did Antoine know, he had the mind to change the world. If this single decision can affect one so drastically, who else could fall below this crude fate? I definitely disagree with Roger Sipher’s,”So That Nobody Has to Go to School If They don’t want To”, because: immature minds can’t make wholesome decisions, it would affect the economy as a whole, and it would stunt countless beings from achieving their full potential. Sipher Roger, insists that “One reason for the crisis is that present mandatory-attendance laws force many to attend school who have no wish to be there. Such children have little desire to learn and are so antagonistic to school that neither they nor more highly motivated students receive the quality education that is the......

Should Changes Be Made to the Regulations for Foods, Served in Public Schools?

...Should changes be made to the regulations for foods, served in public schools? Introduction Regulations for foods, served in public schools are a matter of great concern as it is essential for the purpose of creating a healthier lifestyle for children studying in public schools. The government has supported several children through the free education and free food program. But the quality of this food is not at par with the standard of the food quality approved by nutritionists so it needs to be changes. The foods do not contain fresh fruits, green vegetables, pulses or right amount of any nutrition filled foods so it is required to change the menu as differently as it can be so that proper nutrition can be given. This is not right since it can result in several health issues and so it is crucial that there be a change in the regulations for food served in public schools. Thesis Statement: Food leads to healthy mind and body, healthy mind and body leads to education, Education leads to development. Which means ultimately a healthy food can lead to development. So it is very important to eat well and hence change in regulations is essential. History and status of the issue The program of free education in public schools has been there for quite a long time and the pressure on these schools is significantly growing since the number of children entering and enrolling the public schools is significantly growing. All of this results in...

Change from High School to College

...Life in high school was very different from that of what I have experienced up to now in college. Transition from high school to college was not easy. There were many points influencing the fact that I wasn’t prepared enough initially to go through this experience so suddenly. On 10th september,2015 I was a boy who had flown 18000 miles from Kolkata, India and come to experience a completely different culture and phase of my life. I never expected it to be really easy to get through this change, because I knew they were both going to be very different lives, and life in college would be different because of all the freedom, and responsibility. When I was in high school, I had all the luxuries I needed. I had every single resource. I never had to lift a finger; it was like everything was there for me on a platter. I always had a car for me to go wherever I wanted whenever I wanted, when I did not want to drive, there was a driver t take me. I had people to do all the chores, id never washed a dish, or my clothes before I came to college .I had staff who did the cleaning, ironing and all the other things. I had tutors to help me with the subjects I had a problem with. I know this would seem like too the people in clleg as if I am a brat, and I had to deal with that while learning all this going through such a major life change. Even school was very different, the teaching style, the teachers the friends, everything was something I was comfortable in. Its that way for almost......

...The concept of this essay is to compare and contrast between the Scientific School of Thought and the Behaviorist School of Thought. To better understand this essay two matters must be understood, firstly understanding the meaning of management and secondly, the evolution of management. Management is a collection of different roles undertaken to achieve a job effectively. Another matter that needs to be understood is the evolution of management. Management has evolved from the classical approach to bureaucracy to human relations movement and social psychological schools and finally to modern approach to management. The individuals involved during the evolution of management are Frederick Winslow Taylor, Henri Fayol, Max Weber, and Elton Mayo. F. W. Taylor and Henri Fayol developed classical theories and were concerned with the arrangement and performance of a formal organisation. Max Weber developed a structure of organization known as bureaucracy. Weber developed six characteristics of bureaucracy as followed below: 1. Rules created by management, management will direct the lower levels of the organization by using in a steady and expected approach. 2. Separation of labour, each job is specified with different responsibilities and authority. 3. Hierarchical arrangement, each and every organization has a hierarchy of power. The top level staff gives direction to middle level staff and the middle level staff gives direction to the lower......

School Changes

...From the time I was in preschool until I was a freshman in high school, I attended a private elementary and middle school names St. Lukes Lutheran School where the maximum number of kids in the school was between 100 and 200 students. Everything at the school was very hands on and all the teachers were very helpful because of the low amount of students. For all of the sports, everybody made the team and everyone was given playing time. The amount of attention that was given to all of the students made the material in the classes easy to understand. When I graduated from the school after my freshman year, the class I was in only had 13 students and most of us would be moving on to much larger high schools. The next school year I would be attending Eastern View High School, a newly built public high school in the Culpeper school district. The biggest difference between St. Lukes and Eastern View was the amount of students. I went from a school with 80 students to a class with 400 students. I was extremely worried about having to self motivate myself and not be pushed by my teachers to do better. But instead of falling under the pressure, I thrived from it and pushed myself. I was given so much freedom as a student which I had never had before. That gave me the opportunity to try different classes that I was interested in. During my sophomore year I was told about the Sports Medicine class to study Athletic Training. Since I didn’t know what I wanted to study when I got...

How Technology Can Change Schools

...In school, we use old, torn textbooks that have not been up to date information nothing like when you use technology like computers. If we use a computer with tabs or websites for textbooks it would solve some problems but not all of them. First it would be up to date events or facts at learners fingertips. Next it would excite learners instead of those boring, old textbooks. What’s more important is that it can save less time and maybe money. That’s why technology should be used in schools instead of textbooks. With the technology now a days, schools should in corporate this into learning experiences. It can give the teachers most recent information. For example, if needed what is the most currents events for a class, you could just use small computers for the students to find this out and write about it. Also, doing the work on technology can motivate students to do it rather than writing which takes half the time or maybe even blow it off. Above all, the technology schools can use change students attitude towards school work. In textbooks you just see paragraphs and paragraphs of facts and very cheesy pictures on the side that explain what was said. Through computers, they can show a video that students listen to so that they don’t have to read. Also these videos can demonstrate how something works or functions. As well, these videos are can help the students become visual learners. Above all else, computers can contribute in many different ways of......

Changes of Breakfast and Lunch School Program

...What is so important to change the breakfast and lunch school from what we have? It is important as parents are very concern about what their children have at school for breakfast and lunch. This topic is become sensitive and brought it up to majority by the First Lady, Michelle Obama at Parklawn Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia as she claimed that she was worried about the food at school as she tried to prepare healthy food for her children (Nixon, 2012.) Moreover changing the breakfast and lunch program can come from many reasons: economic, population, and benefits. In this economy hard time, parents who never have any problem about putting money in pocket might find themselves struggling with financial problem. According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, unemployment has steadily risen and reaching 6.7% in November 2008 and also food and energy prices have increased dramatically throughout. As the bad economic continue the more unemployment will grow larger. Due to financial situation, parents are more apply for the breakfast and lunch program. As reported over the last five years the rates have increased annually by 2.5% to 4.1% (Siegel, 2010) and the higher the student participation rates, the higher the amounts of reimbursement the school receives. As shown in the following picture, there is an increase of free and reducing meals only paid meals are decreased.

School Lunch Changes

...The recent changes in school lunches are beneficial to everyone that is involved. Children are becoming obese sooner in life do to not eating the right things at school. If we supply breakfast and a healthier lunch for children, they would be a lot healthier. This brochure should inform you of the benefits for your children to eat healthier. Congress passed the National School Lunch Act in 1946 to support commodity prices after World War II by reducing farm surpluses while providing food to schoolchildren. By 1970, the program was providing 22 million lunches on an average day, about a fifth of them subsidized. Since then, the subsidized portion has grown while paid lunches have declined, but not since 1972 have so many additional children become eligible for free lunches as in fiscal year 2010, 1.3 million. Today it is a $10.8 billion program providing 32 million lunches, 21 million of which are free or at reduced price. The number of students receiving subsidized lunches rose to 21 million last school year from 18 million in 2006-7, a 17 percent increase, according to an analysis by The New York Times of data from the Department of Agriculture (Sam Dillion, New York Times, Nov. 30, 2011). Some children only get to eat food at school. In Dallas, Newark and Chicago, for instance, about 85 percent of students are eligible, and most schools also offer free breakfasts. Now, some places have added free supper programs, fearing that needy students otherwise will go to bed......

...For John Taylor Gatto, being educated and being schooled are two things different. Effectively, for him the school goal is to bring children at “the same safe level” meanwhile education could be aquired without the teacher’s help. Then, do we really need school? As John said, our schools look like prisons in which you are forced to work or without working, you will fail over and over. School is then synonymous of success; by going to school you are required to acquire the most knowledge possible for successing in your future life.Are all the people who graduate from secondary school successful? Are all the people who were or are successful such as George Washington, graduated from our secondary school? No unfortunatelly, then what is the real purpose of our schools? Would we change its system by being more flexible with what our teachers are teaching to us because mostly it is not necessarly especially in our future life. In fact, education should remplace schools; I am not saying that school is not important, it is but we should more focus on educating our children rather that forcing them to learn things they would not need things that bore them most of the time. Then, I do agree with Taylor. Nowadays, without a graduation in secondary school, it’s hard to enter into a good university, thereby hard to get a good job later. Our role upon children is to help them develop in what they really like, we have......
