I believe cheeseburger was saying that the restrictions are due to the government because the schools are so dependent on government funds. also cheeseburger said that the teachers bring outside food but that is not allowed by the students. that is not fair.<quoted text>
I can assure you the lunch restrictions arent put in place by the teachers, principals or the school system!

Our kids are allowed to bring lunches in - just no peanuts. Again teachers don't make the rules.

Are you aware that our local taxes only amount to about 16% of the school's budget. If you look an the entire budget, local tax might
pay two or three percent of the teacher' salary, hardly what I would call working for you.
Because the schools depend on the state and federal government for about 85% of their budget, they must follow the stupid dietary
restrictions, school prayer ban, needless testing programs, etc.

Based on your comment, guest post # 45, I suppose that means that you never do any shopping in the state of Tennessee to have to pay the state portion of the sales tax. That tax money does go into the state funds from which monies are then given back to the local school system. I also presume that you do not work and pay any type of federal income tax – again that money goes into the federal budget which gives money back to the states for giving to the local school system.
Just because a smaller portion of our local school budgets comes from local money collected from property taxes and the local portion of the sales tax does not mean that we are not contributing a large enough amount of money that we should be disallowed any input into the quality and caliber of the systems’ teachers and staff.
