These children are not someone wandering out in a pasture hoping someone would haul them some food. Now these children I am referring to are the children attending the Fourth District School and they should have the same equal opportunity as others in the Appling County School System. They should not be singled out to have their meals prepared at one school at Appling County Middle School and hauled out to Fourth District School; 15 miles out one way to carry breakfast – 15 miles back to middle school, get lunch and carry lunch back to Fourth District another 15 miles and then back after lunch another 15 miles. In addition the school system will have to purchase a van and other equipment. Where are the savings? Does that seem like very good judgment? Truthfully it appears more like exerting authority a total of 60 miles per day to haul meals per day.
