[Homework]2015-09-26 英国拟不再为幼龄学生提供免费午餐

From reception to year 2 all children now get free hot school meals, saving their parents 400 pounds a child per year, but Sky news understands the scheme could fall under the chancellor's knife in November's spending review, and head teachers including the one here at St B want assurance that won't happen.For all kinds of ways physically a child is better off, and able to concentrate than much more, they are more comfortable in the afternoon, they are more settled, i mean we've got the system running, we've got it up running and it's running well, children are benifiting, please don't take it away from them.
The education budget is around 54 billion pounds, 40 billion is protected which covers per pupil spending in primary and secondary schools, 14 billion isn't protected, that includes early years teacher training, college and free school meals, the department has to propose options of 25% and 40% cuts to these areas.
The question is really one of value for money, and it's whether the better use of 800 million pounds a year to pay for free school meals for all children regardless of their parental wealth, and i'm not convinced that however nice it is that it is better to be resolved at the current time.
Politically free school meals are seen as a liberal democrat policy, something from the coalition days that could perhaps be easily discarded by the conservatives as a Nick Cleg folly, a bit of Lib Dem baggage to get rid of, well it but for this, the conservative manifesto of 2015 which pledges to keep the program.
All the evidence suggests that children who have a school mean every day are two-month further on their studies than those that don't, it's damaging to children, it's an insult to our schools, and i guess it is a demonstration of what the liberal democrats did achieve when we were in power, these are the things you lose when we are not.
Celebrity chefs have added to calls to keep the program, Remond B told Sky news as a result of the introduction of the universal infant free school meals, millions of children who just a year ago were eating sugary, processed packed lunches are now eating a proper nutritious meal, it would be shortsighted and catastrophic to undo that. and Jimmy O currently adviser in the government on child obesity said the vast majority of packed lunches get nowhere near the nutritional standards set for school meals, it would be a disaster if it were to be taken away. John Vincent owner of L restaurant was commissioned by last coalition government to come up with the program, and he is also concerned.
Before free school meals you have the less well off children eating school dinners, the * you had the better off children eating sugary packed lunches, and then you have the working poor and the middle who weren't eligible for free school meals, who weren't spending very much on school dinners, and we're having bad quality packed lunches, so suddenly all three groups benefit by eating together everybody benefits.
But even with millions spent on upgrading school kitchens, the scheme might now be shelved in the chancellor's budget furnace.
