Are this administration’s policies making our children turn to crime?

According to an article in The Washington Free Beacon, children in our schools are creating their own black markets, trading and selling sugar, salt, and pepper secretly in school.

Really, is this what we have come to?

When will this madness end?

The other day there was a hearing held by the House Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education, were a school administrator testified about the unintended consequences of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.

John S. Payne, the president of Blackford County School Board of Trustees in Hartford City, Ind. told The Washington Free Beacon, “Perhaps the most colorful example in my district is that students have been caught bringing–and even selling–salt, pepper, and sugar in school to add taste to perceived bland and tasteless cafeteria food.”

How much are these children getting for sugar, salt, and pepper?

Maybe the Obama administration and the Democratic party see this as a way to train our children to become entrepreneurs.

That is a good thing right?

To the rescue, House Republicans have introduced new legislation to give schools more flexibility in meeting the rules. The bill sponsored by Rep. Kristi Noem (R., S.D.) would “ease sodium restrictions, give school administrators flexibility on some of the rules that have increased costs, including the school breakfast program, a la carte options, and school lunch price increases, and make USDA’s easing of the meat and grain requirements permanent.”

John Payne went on to state, “The clear solution to these problems is local leadership and flexibility, when local school districts have the authority and flexibility to make adjustments honoring the spirit and intent of the law they can provide students with healthy, nutritious, and appetizing meals.”

Have you had enough of the madness?

I understand we should teach our children to eat properly, but is this the way to do it?
