Quashing a Food Critique Reflects on School Leadership

Quashing a Food Critique Reflects on School Leadership

Editor, In response to “Young Food Critic Invokes Backlash” June 29, readers should know this is just another issue where our school district’s leadership should be seriously questioned and challenged. Noah Rosen was spot on with his review of the food quality and nutrition in our schools.  The request to retract his statement violates his First Amendment rights. That alone should be alarming!  Ironically, after conducting a quantitative analysis, the same results were reached. Our district has accepted a $100,000 donation given towards the food nutrition program for improvement of food quality and staff training. However, our union protected food service staff makes $14.82 ‐ $25.52 per hour (excluding performance or length of employment bonuses).

The director of food services should have qualifications to solve this problem.  What are we getting for our money? Have bonuses been granted while our food quality has declined?  If we aren’t receiving these services, shouldn’t they be fired, not have more money spent on them? District leadership seems fearful of the very union that provides employees that should be tackling […]
