I could see if the educated healthy food choices but forcing students is another. Another dumb policy in a city where 80% of students can't read.

I guess its to cater to Asians.

That's a great plan. I wouldn't put the **** quality meat that they serve in public schools on my dog's plate.

Why do you people look down on vegetarianism? It's such an immature view. Why must it be meat meat meat? I'm not a vegetarian but I don't feel the need to have meat 3 times a day, 7 days a week, give me a break. For lunch the other day, we had a variety of sandwiches to choose from a restaurant that catered for us. Turkey, ham/cheese, chicken salad & roasted veggies. My coworker proclaimed "Well, I'm not going to have the roasted vegetable sandwich because I'm not a vegetarian!" What in the hell does that have to do with anything? Like you can't have vegetables simply because you're not a vegetarian? Stupid.

Is eating school food now mandated? When I was in grade school I always took my own lunch (I had breakfast at home). I certainly had friends that ate in the school cafeteria, but they could have brought their own food.

Hence, I guess if these students don't like the cafeteria's offering, they can bring their own food. Perhaps this will even lessen the number of students eating at the cafeteria, and so lessen the budget for the school.

80 % of students applying to CUNY ( community college) need to relearn basic reading skills. I suspect this rather common at most community colleges. Maybe this is why most newspapers and publications have been and continue to be written at the 5th-9th grade level.

How did the remaining 20% who applied to CUNY have better reading scores when they likely attended the same schools? How about all the others who applied to and were accepted by private and state schools?

No one is being forced. Anyone can bring lunch from home.

Nobody cares if an individual decides to be a vegetarian.

I read about a school somewhere in the midwest where dozens of parents volunteer their time to cook home-made food for the kids at the school cafeteria using local vegetables and meat. It's a big hit with everybody. I wish our school lunch program had been like that!
