I love cleaning out pencil sharpeners. It looks like Chewbacca shaved in there! Look at this haul!

NeverSeconds school food blog banned

This article was so interesting to me.  A student reacting (not even harshly, as most of my students would) to her school food, instead of blindly eating.  Martha is clever and thoughtful, and her blog is sweet to read.  Her school’s reaction to the publicity in a Scotland newspaper was to ban Martha from documenting her school lunches and blogging about them any further.  Obviously, the ban just brought more attention to the girl’s blog, and the school quickly realized how it made THEM look, so they removed the ban, and switched to attacking the newspaper instead.  More than reading this article, I think everyone should check out Martha’s blog!  We get a glimpse of what school lunches around the world look like, and that’s definitely an important conversation to have, with the health of children being a large concern for everyone.
