No snacks needed

Friday, April 7, 2006

Dear Editor,

Like many district patrons, I am having trouble understanding the current plan to expand the high school day next year to accommodate a student "snack period."

Isn't this the same administration that cut ag education and French from the school day?

Now, instead of attending classes in agriculture and a second foreign language, the kids will be studying the outside of McDonald's sacks?

From what I understand, students already leave and enter the high school at will, roaming the hallways with hamburgers and monster soft drinks.

Why do they need more of a bad thing?

Charlene Brown,
