Stunning non-Common Core news
Yesterday we received a couple reports that are just stunning.
“Ok I am not happy. While speaking to my son today about school I always ask what they had for lunch. My son told me “the chicken sandwich.” He then added that he ate some carrots and oranges. So he mentioned that yesterday at school lunch they had breadsticks. He said he took a breadstick and was supposed to also get a chicken sandwich. When the lunch lady saw he had a breadstick she informed him that he could not have a bun on his chicken sandwich if he had the breadstick. Why?
because that is too much grain. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! I am so tired of the government telling us what we can eat, and what my child can eat. It is a bun, a BUN for heavens sake. It was not like he asked for a extra brownie, cookie, or cake (which I believe is outlawed). I usually cook every night, I am not taking my kids to fast food. I try to be a responsible parent with what I feed my children. I try to prepare nutritious well balanced meals. Ask my children, at dinner I always tell them they have to take some vegetable and eat it. The son who was told he could not have a bun, has not had a soda pop or any carbonated drink since May. He drinks water. When will the government start regulating how much bread I eat? I do not blame the lunch lady, she was just following regulations handed down. Someone is going to hear from me.”
This reminds me of the story our of North Carolina from a few years ago where a mother’s child had his lunch confiscated (turkey sandwich, banana, apple juice, and potato chips) and given school chicken nuggets as a healthier option.

Another parent writes that her senior is enrolled in Concurrent Enrollment English at Bountiful High School, through Weber State. Weber just assigned this article for the students to think about the “ethical and moral views of this lifestyle” and about whether “these groups constitute ‘families’…” The parent complained to the principal who said, his “hands are tied because Weber State decides the curriculum.” Maybe Weber State needs their tax funding pulled to remind them about community standards, especially where it concerns minors. As one person put it, this is normalizing perversion.
