“What an overreach this is for Washington to tell us what our school can and cannot sell to raise money in our schools,” Barge says, according to WSB. …
School leaders in other states are admitting the new regulations are actually already backfiring.
“The effect has been not what was intended,” says Jack Carter of Richland District 2 near Columbia, South Carolina. “The effect has been kids don’t eat in the cafeteria anymore, and that’s nationwide,” he tells WLTX.
Carter implied there will be a new type of segregation in schools – those that have good lunches, and those that have Michelle Obama’s.
