School’s Out — ‘School’ Lunch Isn’t

Errors of Enchantment Blog Postings - Wed, 2015-05-27 11:08

“A lot of the parents might think that it’s for the poor only, but it’s not — it’s for every child.”

That’s Johnny Chavez, program director of Clovis’s Sacred Heart Summer Food Service. A “federally-funded, state-administered program,” the SFSP “reimburses providers who serve healthy meals to children and teens in low-income areas at no charge primarily during the summer months when school is not in session.”

Chavez is correct about eligibility. No means test is applied.

Hunger is America is a wildly overblown “problem,” but to the extent that it afflicts children, shouldn’t programs be narrowly targeted? And if parents are not providing adequate nutrition to their kids, shouldn’t the state’s Children, Youth & Families Department step in?

Ending social promotion has worked in Florida

Errors of Enchantment Blog Postings - Wed, 2015-05-27 10:12

As the 2014-2015 school year comes to an end, decisions are undoubtedly being made as to whether or not to promote 3rd graders who cannot read. Efforts to end that policy have been proposed by Gov. Martinez since she became Governor, but Democrats have repeatedly opposed the reform. This, despite overwhelming public support for the reform as indicated by polling from Brian Sanderoff:

The Rio Grande Foundation has supported social promotion reform and continues to do so (although we’d prioritize robust school choice even higher), but I just encountered some additional research on the issue from education analysts Jay Greene and Marcus Winters:
