Why is it that the administration blames the person who orders the food, who is no doubt making just a tad more than minimum wage? As I recall, the previous superintendant started the whole Preferred Meals debacle, and at that time, the Bell Herron kids didn't even have a kitchen. The Cafeteria Staff is not at blame here people, it is the higher-ups who are making the decisions for your children, and then tossing off flip comments just like this new dude did. Do ANY parents ever go to these board meetings????? Duh is right!!!

This superintendent is a gladhander. He will tell anyone what he thinks they need to know in the moment to move them along. His comment was flip and totally unprofessional. This lunch debacle is now in a hole so deep that there is no going back to the wholesome lunches of yesteryear.

And the reason for the change in the first place is lack of funding. Does the fact that there has been no new revenue for the schools since 1977 not bother anyone else? It is a testament to the higher-ups over the years that the doors to our schools are still open. Wake up people!

On top of creating a cafeteria for awful food at the Bell Herron Middle School, the drama teacher almost was fired because she tried to run the plays in the same area and changed some part of the stage componenets. The community dedicated time and money to create this stage and gym for plays not a cafeteria. The last superintendent insisted on this junk food. Why? Did she know the vendor personally? She always tried to get her goons in the system. However, this cafeteria situation is the administration's faux pas. The "program director" needs to get out of his office and park in the cafeteria and help. There are bigger problems in this world to solve than how to supply good food at an affodable price for kids. Come on. Why are administrators paid eighty to ninety thousand dollars a year? To solve problems, not accuse others of not being capable. The solution needs to come personally from administration. Stop your talk and show some action.
