School junk food ban riles parents
Parents of Lockridge Senior High School are furious over a plan by the school’s administration to ‘raid’ students school bags to confiscate junk food.
Parents have taken to the school’s facebook page to express their outrage over the initive that includes searching a student’s bag if the teachers suspect the child is carrying items that does not tick nutritional standards.
The idea has also drawn criticism from school groups who say an education program would be more beneficial than that of a plan to invade privacy of students.
