who should control students’ lunches–school or parents?

     Since I had several items over the last few weeks about the brouhaha in Chicago, IL, over a school prinicpal who banned sack lunches from home, I thought that I would share this item as well.

     Rich Tucker, a communications professional and a columnist for Townhall.com, had an item on Apr. 29, 2011, entitled “Is Government Protecting Us or Limiting Us?”

     He began, “Children learn a lot in school. Maybe more than we intend to teach them. CNN recently reported: “One Chicago public school is telling students they can either eat cafeteria food or ‘go hungry.’” No homemade lunches will be allowed without a medical excuse.

     “The goal is to make certain children eat well. But that needs to be a parent’s job, not a school bureaucrat’s job. This school is teaching kids that they aren’t capable — and that their parents aren’t capable — of making sensible decisions about something as fundamental as what they eat.”
