To what extent are moral and ethical considerations taken into account in educational decision making? Take unhealthy school lunches as an example. Burgers and fries and pizza and hot dogs, while I will support on occasion [smile], are not healthy choices. We’ve known for a bazillion years what healthy food is and how important smart nutritional choices are for students. But of course it requires more money and resources to provide fresh/nutritional/healthy meal and snack options.
The “right” thing [also moral/ethical] is to provide the babies with what’s good for them! I appreciate what’s happening in the Baltimore City Public Schools – locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, meatless Mondays, and nutritional education to name a few.
