Students Want Reform, Too

What Schools are Up Against

How will schools ever be able to work on nutrition if parents seek to subvert efforts? The same thing has happened in England as they have tried to make school dinners more healthy--parents passing junk food through the school gates!

Though I certainly don't think that students should be denied education (i.e., suspended) for violating food policies, that's not really the big story here in my mind. Why didn't the reporter ask the dad why he was bringing fast food to school for his daughter?
