Busybodies invade the school lunch program

So, I’m on the mailing list for the Alexander Graham Bell Elementary School PT(S)A. Usually, it’s some back-patting, calls for volunteers, and occasional useful notices for parents. On a pretty frequent basis, some chick named “France Giddings” (who is apparently an “investigator” for something called “A.C.A.”) sends out some tripe usually pushed out of the state teacher’s union, about how we need to encourage the government to send more money to the state teacher’s union. Today, I get this, which is basically some busybody housewife who thinks she’s a self-taught nutrition expert, looking to push the school district to adopt “progressive” top-down food service policies.
I’ve read the policies she’s so appalled by. They’re pretty basic, and push responsibility down the chain to the local administrators, where it belongs. I don’t want bozos like Ms. Thorn wasting the school district’s time debating all this crap, instigating a “one size fits all” policy, and screwing it up for everyone, when what we’ve got is working. If people don’t like what the schools are serving their kids, brown-bagging is cheaper anyway.
Get a life, Shelly.
