"Students grow and prepare food as part of the curriculum, and Waters believes it teaches lifelong lessons in nutrition. The Edible Schoolyard has won accolades, but Flanagan argued in her Atlantic piece that it has no place in an academic environment and robs the nation's most vulnerable children of a proper education."
If the Flanagan statement hasn't been taken out of context, then I have to say that's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. Learning to grown and prepare food "robs the nation's most vulnerable children of a proper education?"
Isn't learning to grow and prepare food actually educational? If one learns to do that then it means that vulnerable children aren't learning reading, writing,'rithmetic? Did Flanagan actually read what she wrote before submitting it for publication?
Alice Waters is one of the very tiny handful of chefs who has completely altered the way we appreciate food. Good for her!
