Quotes

Richard Carmona - U.S. Surgeon General, 2002-2006: Obesity is the terror within. And unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist event you can point out to me.

Why are schools the parents?
24 October 2012 | by KellykyleSee all my reviews

Why do we continue to take on the responsibility of parents? The real documentary is asking the question why parents allow their kids to go to school and eat junk. Let's explore the trend of parents to shirk responsibility. The number one role of a parent is to feed and shelter. It is not the job of public education to feed the students. Here's a solution- close the cafeterias and get the parents to pack a lunch or have junior and senior high kids pack their own. This is a ridiculous documentary. If parents stop giving grade school students money and pack them a real lunch then there go the rotten lunch programs. If the intent of this documentary is to help the situation then it missed it's mark. Outside agency's, film makers, lunch ladies can not do the job of parents. Free lunch programs? It's free! Do you expect it to be great? It's cheap free food. What to stop it? Do a better job regulating how food stamps are spent.
