This is what you get when government runs schools - today's edition

Leviathan controls the kiddies' lives, right down to what is going in their mouths:

More than 30 parents in Durham, Ontario shared stories about teachers telling their kids what items they could and could not eat, and even confiscating food, Canada's The Star reported last Thursday. Teachers reportedly told children their parent-given foods were "too unhealthy" to eat.
Tami DeVries said that when her son took his lunch to kindergarten, it was confiscated. A teacher took away his kielbasa, cheese, and Wheat Thins crackers, replacing them with Cheerios. Alicia Nesbitt reported that her stepdaughter, in first grade, had chips removed from her lunch during the first week of school.
“She came home and told me they weren’t a ‘healthy choice,’” Nesbitt said. “That may be true, but the rest of her lunch and snacks were very healthy and it’s up to parents if they want to put a little treat in for their kids. Unless the school wants to provide lunches, I don’t really think it’s their business.”
Janae Brangman recalled several times last where, when her daughter, then in first grade, had her entire lunch sent home because it contained pizza. The school didn't have a problem with pizza per se, after all it has designated pizza days. Her daughter just needed to eat her pizza on the right day.
Local mom Tami DeVries says when her son was in kindergarten his lunch of kielbasa, cheese and Wheat Thins crackers was confiscated and replaced with Cheerios, while Alicia Nesbitt was “furious” that her stepdaughter, currently in Grade 1 with the Durham Catholic District School Board, had chips removed from her lunch the first week of school.
"It's not like he had chips or a chocolate bar," explained Eliana Daoust, a mother of two. The offending piece of food? A snack-size banana bread. Her son was told not to eat a small piece of banana bread for his morning snack, because it contained chocolate chips.
"He came home with a chart (listing healthy snack ideas) and told me he and the teacher talked about it and healthy choices," Daoust said. "She also sent a note to me. I was really, really, really mad for several reasons." 
The Durham District school board doesn't see a problem.


  1. I'll do anything that you want me but keep away from my kielbasa too

  2. It's some good stuff, but the jackbooted overlords have some kind of kinky objection to it.
