Chicago Kids: Get Your Hands Off My Lunchbox!

No wonder Chicago Public Schools have a dropout rate near 50%: now the government school system is telling kids what to eat.

Fearing that mother’s lunches will be inferior to bureaucrats’, Chicago schools are now banning lunches brought from home. And kids ain’t happy about it. The Chicago Tribune reports:

Fernando Dominguez cut the figure of a young revolutionary leader during a recent lunch period at his elementary school.

"Who thinks the lunch is not good enough?" the seventh-grader shouted to his lunch mates in Spanish and English.

Dozens of hands flew in the air and fellow students shouted along: "We should bring our own lunch! We should bring our own lunch! We should bring our own lunch!"

Fernando waved his hand over the crowd and asked a visiting reporter: "Do you see the situation?"

The last thing failing schools should be worrying about is what kids are eating for lunch. With miserable track records at educating children, how can we expect them to get nutritional needs right?

Government schools do not run our lives. Some things should still be sacred including, yes, a home-packed lunch.

This is further proof that government-run education is failing and it’s why kids are leaving it in droves for educational options that work.
