    Stop this scam! You are creating victims by making them feel they need this kind of subsidy.

    And why Time magazine, why not the American Spectator (https://spectator.org/), or doesn't that fit your socialist narrative?

    Do you realize that CPS teachers make on average 20%-30% more than the average person in Chicago? And, kids graduate without marketable skills.

    Ask their parents for the money. CPS is a money hole because all is given free, not earned. These kids learn dependency and are doomed by this trash.

    Stop encouraging socialism. As Dickens points out in The Christmas Story when Scrooge is asked to donate to charity, he asked" Why should I give to charity, the government already took my money and opened the Poorhouses." The tragedy of government give-aways is not that the poor do not have enough, it is that the wealthy feel relieved of their responsibility to help those with less.

    The government already took our money to fund schools that graduate kids that cannot read, write, add, subtract, multiply and divide.

  • They already get free breakfast and lunch on the taxpayers dime and it appears that your poster girl in the center hasn't missed one yet. And you want to supply them with more junk food to ensure they'll destroy their health and be a further taxpayer burden.
