"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

The Food Police in Wellesley Stike Back at Kids

Who is supposed to be setting educational policies for schools?  The state or the Federal Government?

This is a classic example of governmental overreach reported by boston.com. The food police strikes again!  Poor kids.  It's supposed to be about them, right? It's to make them fit and healthy according to Michelle Obama.  It's more as if the schools via the Federal Government mandates are starving students with not serving them enough food to satisfy them and providing expired milk. The waste of food is tremendous because it's not tasty or it's spoiled.  It's time for a food fight from parents...and constitutional pushback from these ridiculous nanny state policies:

The School Committee said the portion sizes that the children complained about are regulated by the federal government.

Why are states allowing this bullying policy?  Why are these bureaucrats so spineless they allow spoiled food and meager portions to be served to students?  Who is responsible for the education for students (including lunch food)?  The states or the Federal Government?
