You have that much extra cash? Some people can't afford private schools. Some can't afford to stay home and homeschool their kids. But all of us have hunks of money taken from our household to pay for public schools, so yes, we all have the right to complain...especially when what they are feeding the kids do not reflect the needs of an average teenager. Look at the portion sizes, for heaven's sake. Teenage boys are avg. of 5.75 feet tall, avg. weight of 140 lbs. How would you feel if your employer demanded you eat no more than 850 calories for your lunch, and refused to allow you to bring your own food, including snacks? Instead, you had to eat at their cafeteria, and you'd better like it or starve.
