Sound Off To The Editor

Absolutely ridiculous to give all New York City students free lunch. Those students whose parents can readily afford to pay for their children’s lunch should do so. By doing this, we are setting up a real welfare state. To avoid children being stigmatized for being eligible for free lunch, this problem could easily be solved by assigning all students computerized cards indicating privately which child is eligible for free lunch and those who are not.
