I think that Utah takes it even further than free lenchus . Its called child care . Children who are not capable of attending school as normal kids do (like walk there, study, participate in discussions etc) are encouraged to (maybe even required) attend. There is a child in our neighborhood that has Down's Syndrome. She cannot talk, is inattentive, not potty trained, is wild acting, like ADD or whatever its called. She has been in the public school since first grade and is now in the third or fourth and since she has not improved at all, there is a paid aid that is assigned to sit with her all day and take care of her. This gives her mother 7-8 hours daily of Elena free time to go shopping, volunteer at the Temple or whatever she wants to do during the school year as long as she is home when school lets out. She has to take care of her during the summer and spring breaks but other than that, she has school funded day care . The lady next door fought all the way to the Governor back about 20 years ago for her daughter who was totally retarded, could not walk or control her body movements, could not talk and was completely non-responsive to anything and Marie wanted her to be allowed to go to the public school. She ended up at 14 or so in a home because they could no longer take care of her, but she thought the public school owed her an education or baby sitter .I would rather provide lunch than what Utah does. However, I agree, take away the free lunch or even the paid ones and make them carry lunch or go hungry. There are exceptions to the parents will make sure the kids get something to eat, but if they actually checked, they would find that an awful lot of the free lenchus should not be (lets not forget the free breakfasts) provided.Good point, SRO, I guess you see it happening.

Well first of all the A.O.C. were the Original idea for how the united stteas of america would be governed. But once they found out that they were a weak form of government congress (and every one els) decided to throw them out, so they went to work on a new form of government. Eventually America was split up into two different people Federalist and Anti-Federalist. The federalist wanted a strong central government and the Anti wanted a weak central government. Eventually they agreed to come up with the Constitution, and afterwords the Bill of rights. The main difference is that the A.O.C. were a weak and unsuccessful goverment.But the summary of the A.O.C. is ..Establishes the name of the confederation as The United States of America. Asserts the equality of the separate stteas with the confederation government, i.e. Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated. Establishes the United States as a new nation, a sovereign union of sovereign stteas, united . . . for their common defense, the security of their liberties, and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other, against all force offered to, or attacks made upon them . . . , while declaring that the union is perpetual, and can only be altered by approval of Congress with ratification by all the state legislatures. Establishes freedom of movement–anyone can pass freely between stteas, excluding paupers, vagabonds, and fugitives from justice. All people are entitled to the rights established by the state into which he travels. If a crime is committed in one state and the perpetrator flees to another state, he will be extradited to and tried in the state in which the crime was committed. Allocates one vote in the Congress of the Confederation (United States in Congress Assembled) to each state, which was entitled to a delegation of between two and seven members. Members of Congress were appointed by state legislatures; individuals could not serve more than three out of any six years. Only the central government is allowed to conduct foreign relations and to declare war. No stteas may have navies or standing armies, or engage in war, without permission of Congress (although the state militias are encouraged). When an army is raised for common defense, colonels and military ranks below colonel will be named by the state legislatures. Expenditures by the United States will be paid by funds raised by state legislatures, and apportioned to the stteas based on the real property values of each.Defines the powers of the central government: to declare war, to set weights and measures (including coins), and for Congress to serve as a final court for disputes between stteas. Defines a Committee of the States to be a government when Congress is not in session. Requires nine stteas to approve the admission of a new state into the confederacy; pre-approves Canada, if it applies for membership. Reaffirms that the Confederation accepts war debt incurred by Congress before the Articles.
