    House Bill 610 makes some large changes.

    This bill will effectively start the school voucher system to be used by children ages 5-17, and starts the defunding process of public schools. In addition the bill will eliminate the Elementary and Education Act of 1965, which is the nation's educational law and provides equal opportunity in education.

    It would repeal ESSA (Every Students Succeeds Act):
    ESSA is a big comprehensive program that covers programs for struggling learners, AP classes, ESL classes, classes for minorities such as Native Americans, Rural Education, Education for the Homeless, School Safety (Gun-Free schools), Monitoring and Compliance and Federal Accountability Programs.

    The Bill also abolishes the Nutritional Act of 2012 (No Hungry Kids Act) which provides nutritional standards in school breakfast and lunch.

    The bill has no wording protecting Special Needs kids, no mention of IDEA and FAPE.
    Some things ESSA does for Children with Disabilities
    -Ensures access to the general education curriculum.
    -Ensures access to accommodations on assessments.
    -Ensures concepts of Universal Design for Learning
    -Includes provisions that require local education agencies to provide evidence-based interventions in schools with consistently underperforming subgroups.
    -Requires states in Title I plans to address how they will improve conditions for learning including reducing incidents of bullying and harassment in schools, overuse of discipline practices and reduce the use of aversive behavioral interventions (such as restraints and seclusion).

    Deflection noted. And you spelled feelings wrong, 4 billion WASTE program per year. Those 4 billion could be better used to give people health coverage , but since liberals sold out to the health care industry it's not going to happen.

    They could work on waste and still fund the program. No need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    Your post prevents you from acknowledging the fact that you don't have to kill a program to save the waste. You just need to adjust the program.

    Food is wasted in America all the time going back to crap food is not the solution if you think it is then you show how little you care about the health of children. Making high quality good tasting food would solve the issue. If kids go hungry when food is avaliable is a American problems.

    They ate garbage. Again - you can adjust the new program and not waste 4 billion bucks. It's not one OR the other.

    REPUBLICAN LOGIC
    A short screenplay by samiwas
    Characters:
    ANGRY GUY 1 - Short, fat, bald, ugly
    NORMAL GUY 1 - An adonis. The mind of Einstein, the looks of a model, and a personality no one can hate.

    Angry Guy 1: We have an obesity problem in America! We must rid the country of these fatties!!

    Normal Guy 1: So what should we do about it?

    Angry Guy 1: People need to get educated on food and nutrition so those fatties aren't always eating those fatty foods!

    Normal Guy 1: Hmmm...perhaps there could be some sort of education easily in life so they learn to eat better food.

    Angry Guy 1: Exactly! All these kids are eating processed crap and not learning about how good fruits and vegetables are, or how to balance a meal!

    Normal Guy 1: Cool. Well, there's now a government program to encourage healthy eating in schools by providing them with healthier food options and requiring schools to follow more stringent nutritional guidelines.

    Angry Guy 1: WHAT??? The government is now deciding what kids should eat? Kids won't eat that crap. They'll just throw it away and go hungry!! Kids want pizza! Chicken fingers! Nachos! Soda! Don't let the government tell them what they should eat. The kids will starve!!

    Normal Guy 1: So, you don't want them to have healthier food in schools?

    Angry Guy 1: People should be able to choose for themselves.

    Normal Guy 1: So, you want to keep it as it is. So then what's your problem?

    Angry Guy 1: We have an obesity problem in America! We must rid the country of these fatties!!


    END OF ACT 1

    I expect this to get picked up by every studio. I'm going to be a millionaire.
