    "It's for the children..."

    This is what happens when the feds get involved in public education. Hey Holder - once upon a time a teacher in NJ may have accidentally broken a copyright law....:evil:

    They get money for food from the Fed, the Fed gets to make the rules. Don't accept the money (which I wish they did), then they can do what they want.

    Quite simple, really.

    Ah the central planner mentality in action. Help kids by fining the school $15,000...:cuckoo:

    Education is perhaps the most important aspect for the future of our society...so we let bureaucrats and public sector unions run every aspect of the market, from what's in the text books to how many tater tots get served at lunch. That is frickin' insane. :eusa_hand:

    As usual with fines and the govt. The fines are dropped if the problem is solved.

    If the government starts with schools to not only control what children eat, but to convince them that the government is more concerned with their health and well being than either the school or the parents they will produce adults who will depend on that government for all decisions.

    I agree. And I can safely assume you pressure your local school board to REJECT all federal funds for breakfast/lunch programs.

    Indeed: Either accept the bribe and consequences, or do not.

    However, remember that not all the rules that the Fed makes are funded by the Feds: E.G. IDEA

    How the hell do you accidentally sell soda?
    Is it like accidentally selling cocaine.
    "No seriously officer the cocaine just fell into my purse
    and I just accidentally gave it to some guy who accidentally dropped
    money into my purse I swear."
    Go try that defense in a court room.

    I will insist that banning junk food/soda in schools would do more to raise test scores then any other policy you can name. But I guess being fat stupid and diabetic is too important.

    Jamie Oliver's school dinners shown to have improved academic results | Education | The Guardian
    ^In Greenwich schools switched to a healthier menu and as a result absences were reduced by 15%.
    ^Also test scores such as those in English and science increased by around 5%

    The Answer Sheet - School junk food ban works, study finds
    ^Schools that banned "junk food" saw an 18% decline in student obesity.

    Daily Kos: NYC schools feed students good food, test scores rise 16%
    ^New York City implemented a school lunch/breakfast/snack policy that focused on healthy food and eliminated unhealthy food choices, afterwards test scores increased by 16%

    Why, because you think teenagers won't get that junk food and soda anyway? Please...:doubt:

    Tell you what, why don't you raise your kids to not eat that stuff and stop pretending you know what's best for everyone else.
