School Lunches ~~ A Natl. Security Issue

   
Retired military officers' group, Mission: Readiness, deem school lunches a national security threat, because 27% of new recruits age 17-24 are too overweight to join the military.

New report says the US government spends tens of millions of dollars every year to train replacements for service members discharged because of weight problems.

It's really part of the "efficiency program" of the BOE. Students are able, under our new plan, to accumulate all the calories they require for the week in only three lunches. That will allow for additional study time (teaching time is not allowed because of current GTA union rules) for the students.
