Your kid's school lunch - who decides?

Who decides what your kid eats for lunch at school?

I'm not talking about whether he hits the junk food line or chooses mac & cheese or three bags of Fritos. If you want to pack his lunch (or, better yet, have him pack it himself, should you be able to do that?

And what if, horror of all horrors, you want to send some carrots, celery sticks and an apple or pear to school with him? Think you ought to be able to do that?

If you do, you'll want to keep your distance from the principal at Little Village Academy, on Chicago's west side.

Read this article, and then read the Chicago Tribune article from the link within it.


And watch out that it doesn't happen where you live!
