Great Moments in Government Education

Here's a great example of what happens when you turn your children over to the Government:
A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day.
The Agent?! A little preschool in a little North Carolina town has a Government Agent? And that Government Agent's job is to inspect home-packed lunches to insure they comply with Federal Guidelines? Specifically, guidelines issued by "The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services." Even the name of that organization sounds intrusive.

Has this Government gotten big enough and intrusive enough for you now? Especially nice is the way the Government Agent informs the four year old that her mother packed an inadequate lunch. What a repulsive, stomach turning story.

As if all that weren't audacious enough, the three chicken nugget she was fed is hardly enough substance to get through the rest of the day as well as meeting virtually zero of the guidelines set out. Facism is afoot!
