Compulsory education "ensures at least one good meal a day."

You haven't visited a public school cafeteria recently. Bureaucracy ensures that only low quality USDA scraps will be feed to the inmates--I mean students.

It just so happens that the largest supplier of school meals is also the largest supplier of prison meals. The prison meals have higher nutritional value than the school meals because ironically, prisoners have the right to a better meal than a student.
