Chicago school bans some lunches brought from home

So much for this being a "free country." Admittedly, it sounds like the food that most of these kids were bringing from home was pretty crappy.

Quote
For many CPS parents, the idea of forbidding home-packed lunches would be unthinkable. If their children do not qualify for free or reduced-price meals, such a policy would require them to pay $2.25 a day for food they don't necessarily like.
That's the ol' American cheapness when it comes to food at work again. Heaven forfend that a parent have to spend more than $2.25 a day on a child's food. LOL

"We don't spend anywhere close to that on my son's daily intake of a sandwich (lovingly cut into the shape of a Star Wars ship), Goldfish crackers and milk," education policy professor Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach wrote in an email.
Of course, lovingly cutting the sandwich into the shape of a Star Wars ship cancels out the damage from the toxins. LOL

    Maybe they're afraid kids will bring RAW CHOPPED LAMB to school.
