At the Little Village Academy on Chicago's West Side, Principal Elsa Carmona has ruled that students are no longer allowed to bring lunches from home unless they have a medical excuse. Barring that, they are required to eat cafeteria food.
Carmona did this because as she said, "Nutrition wise, it is better for the children to eat at the school."
Just because policy dictates Carmona was within her rights as principal to make this decision, doesn't make it a sound decision. This is yet another overreaching step by a government entity in an attempt to take decision making out of the hands of parents, placing it in the hands of the schools.
The question I have is what ties does Principal Carmona have to the company that supplies the food?
Follow the money trail. That's what it's all about folks.
