In Illinois it is illegal to bring your own lunch to school. Only the school is permitted to feed your children

Well, then I must live in another state because I haul my azz out of bed 20 minutes early to make lunches for both my children.

Which they are allowed to eat, I might add.

To edog, Toj, ScarletandOlive, and others I may have missed, I'd like to thank you for your posts in 4/30 Amy column to support me in respect to Julie's response to my posts. I really do appreciate your support. I was so overwhelmed by it that I simply didn't know what to say to you in response. Nothing I come up with seems adequate. You are truly nice people and it's one reason why I go to the topix forums to read your comments on the columns. You've always been kind and helpful to me when I first went there and knew very little (ok, almost nothing) about how the column worked or how to interpret various things. We don't always agree but that only makes is more interesting. I like to hear other people's views and why they think as they do. Sometimes I find my own views changing because what you folks say. I feel very real affection for all of you even though we have never met in person. The internet has truly changed the way people "meet" and interact. ;-) That can be a very good thing.
While no thanks was necessary, you just showed the reason why we had your back. Integrity and kindness!

I did. And what I found was that ONE school adminidtrator banned home brought lunches at the Little Village Academy, not all across Illinois as you would like to lie about.

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/4337744/...

The principal retracted that ban a week later.

EAT OR STARVE: The principal of Chicago’s Little Village Academy public school, Elsa Carmona, had a unique idea on school lunches.  According to the Chicago Tribune, she announced that her students had a choice; they could either eat the cafeteria food or “go hungry.” An article by Bill O’Reilly,“School Lunch Madness,” exposed the dictatorial,“nanny state” principal and her usurpation of parental rights.Carmona felt that the food some moronic parents allowed their kids to eat was garbage and she would rectify that: ”It’s about ... the excellent quality food that they are able to serve (in the lunchroom). It’s milk versus a Coke.”  At $2.25 per, or $11.25 a week, and considering the typical quality of cafeteria grub, it’s hard to say whether the kids would be better off eating garbage. In any event, Carmona retracted her edict after an uproar and said she had been misquoted by the Trib. As O’Reilly concluded,“In America, we allow freedom of choice.  And while kids can’t choose their parents and vice-versa, when it comes to choosing the meal plan, parents should rule

Also, dog, perhaps you can choose your words a little more wisely in the future. The fact that an admin banned somethinh does not make it illegal. Illegal indicates punishable by law. Chewinh gum is also banned in school. That is school policy. Not illegal

I did a brief search on google and found that ONE Chicago public school banned sack lunches 2 years ago and ONE Virginia school district banned sack lunches for their preschool kids.

That's it. You'd think if it was such an epidemic of denying kids home-made lunches, more would come up on a google search.

It's no wonder you're so knowledgeable about "parent fail". You're a textbook example.

Ah, so no we play word games. You know full well how everyone interpreted your statement. So either you were deliberatrly trying to mislead or you did no research youreslf and also assumed all across illinois..

But if you want to play word games, you also used the word illegal. Lie. False. School policy is not law.

Is Little Village Academy one of the charter schools in Chicago or a private school?
