NYC cracks down on bake sales in public schools. Interesting that PTA and parent groups are exempted. And the new regulations for vending machines and school stores that sell snacks are the best part:
The new policy also requires that vending machines, which generate millions of dollars for school sports, be supplied with snacks such as reduced-fat Baked Doritos and low-sugar granola bars. A new vending machine contract is expected to be approved on Wednesday by the Panel for Educational Policy, the school oversight board. Student stores will be able to sell only approved snacks bought from the new vendor, rather than obtain the food themselves, as they once did.
See, if I was the reporter, I'd be wondering who got that contract and what they did to secure it. Always follow the money. Also, expect the drive towards private charter schools to continue...
