Chicago School Bans Lunches From Home
You know, I wasn’t going to post this because I figured that liberals would be all for it and conservatives would be against and it would just be a simple story that wouldn’t go anywhere. Enter HuffPo.
Look at the comments. Almost no one agrees with this, even in the liberal Valhalla, HuffPo.
You want an example of government officials thinking they know better than parents, here you go. One more example of a one size fits all approach that is doomed to nothing but failure. I read in another article than many students were simply observed buying the lunch and dumping it in the trash. Boy, they sure are eating healthier.
Schools seriously need to return to what they are supposed to be doing, educating children in the basic subjects that society has determined everyone should know. History, biology, chemistry, English, math, etc. They need to spend no time deciding what kids should be eating, if parents want to pack a tub full of lard for lunch that’s not the schools business. It’s the schools business to provide lunches to those who want to buy them, not to determine what everyone must eat.
