Have school cafeterias across the country become another political arena?

My first assignment (as a teacher) this past summer was at a Title 1 middle school in east Tulsa. Title 1 schools provide free breakfasts and lunches.


On the first morning in the cafeteria, I saw kids throwing their disposable breakfast trays of untouched food into the trash, except for their chocolate milk. Apparently, the only way kids can have their chocolate milk is if they go through the food line and take a tray of food.


I asked my nearest colleague, “What the heck?”
