This could have something to do with Scandinavian culture being very socialist. (Real Socialism, not American "Anything Left of Crazy" Socialism.)

See: Law of Jante 

Luckily, we all don't live in Socialist hell-holes that all the Scandinavian countries have become. *snert*

In a way, he's accidentally being a good progressive. It's pretty common to hear things about how we're all citizens of the world, global this, it's OK for US courts to consider international law(s) in their decisions, etc. In that context, he's on to something. 'Our' progressive schools are pretty shiatty sometimes.

Blah, blah, blah. Two extremes, neither good. Still, I'd rather see enforced equality than what we have in the USA today: systematic inequality. Live in a good school district? Your kid is on track for Harvard. Live in a bad one? Probably jail. Same kid, different neighborhood. Because rich white people draw school district boundaries to make sure those poor or non-white people are carved out of their schools. It's almost as bad as gerrymandering.

So support school choice. Give people the freedom to choose what school is best for them. It is not regulation that will draw us closer to our utopia, it is freedom.

Is this an appropriate place to point out that European libs think that our good old American libs are right wing kooks?

Meh; it's not like it matters. If they want their kids to eat the exact same lunch, wear the exact same shirts and goose step in time; good for them. I wish them well.

I like consistency as much as the next person; but, seriously? She was cooking food that was too good and got into trouble?

I applaud the idea of a level field for all; but, isn't this taking it a bit too far?

"School Choice" is basically code-word for "private school vouchers". Unless means-tested, vouchers are simply a hand-out to the rich who are already sending their kids to private schools. Low-income, non-white families have less to gain from a voucher system, because private schools are allowed to decide what type of person gets to enroll and what type gets excluded.

I'm more of a supporter of what is known in some states as Open Enrollment where you can choose to enroll your kid to a better public school, if you can only afford to live in a neighborhood with crappy ones.

You don't have to revise anything. It's not like anyone thought you had any credibility to begin with.

As there are towns in the USA named "Sweden", it is entirely likely that this could have happened in the USA.

And having a socialist government lower standards is par for the course.

No, they're saying she doesn't comply with their plan for healthy. It's not about whether or not the food is healthy, it's about who get s to have the say-so on what the kids eat and what people are allowed to call "healthy".

She showed them up. Now, she must pay the price for her folly. Or, more accurately, the kids must.

Yes, because healthy diet directives are all about socialisim.


My kid's school has a "healthy eating initiative" at work in the cafeteria.

When I am there during lunch periods, I see hundreds of pounds of uneaten healthy food get thrown away.

Kids don't eat it. They would rather go hungry. You can't make them no matter how much money you throw at it. The end.

In that case, why does civilized society cost so much more for some people then others?

One group pays a ton for civilization and receives the same poor results as the people pay very little. It's reasonable at some point to question the value they get for their money. It's also reasonable to question the disparity in amounts paid for civilized society.

If I pay $100 for a cheeseburger and get the same burger that you do for only $1, I'm going to have a real problem with that, esp. if the burger is crap. If I demand that you give me a better burger or refund some of my money so I can go somewhere else, that's not a handout nor is it unreasonable.

It's not their own money. It's MY tax money too. And I don't have any crotchfruit, but my tax money still pays for schools.

It doesn't bother me to fund public schools, the little crotch droppings need to be educated so they don't turn to crime. But I'm not at all ok with MY money being given to the rich as a handout for their crotchfruit to go to private schools.

Hell, a better idea would be a ban on private schools.

If someone is harvesting enough wealth from the economy to be in a higher tax bracket, they're not getting the same results from society as a poorer person. In this country, your free to decide how much wealth you want to take from the economy, but the more you choose to take, the more you need to pay for the maintenance of the society on which that economy is built.

For those of you going off on the usual derp about socialism, consider the following:

Until recently the kiddies in UK public schools had socialism as concerns school lunches, then the schools were taken over by Bain Capital types who decided to go all Ayn Rand on their entitled, little, parasite, public school asses by privatizing school lunch programs. This is what a "free market" school lunch looked like when the English versions of the Koch brothers decided to give the kiddies a lesson in capitalism.

ballibeg.smugmug.com 

Well a little UK school girl started a blog called Never Seconds describing her school lunches. The blog went viral, and after threatening the little girl and her parents, the brave free market heroes of the UK school system relented and actually made improvements. 

Compare and contrast this with the "Surrender Monkeys" who always had socialism when it comes to feeding school kids.

I'm a liberal, the libbiest lib that ever libbed. I'm progressive. A liberal, a left-winger. Democrat. While I wouldn't call myself a socialist, I'm sure by the standards of some people here I'd count since I'm a little to the left of President Obama.

That being said, this isn't a liberal/conservative thing. This isn't "liberal thinking" or "socialist ideology". This is bureaucracy, plain and simple. Bureaucratic behavior knows no partisan lines.

A bureaucrat somewhere in Sweden had an inflexible, rigid dietary system. A local lunch lady decided to improve upon it, apparently doing so substantially while remaining under budget. She ran afoul of the bureaucrats in the process, although the parents and students loved it.

Don't call that liberal. Don't call that conservative.

It's bureaucracy, plain and simple. They've got it, we've got it too.

Imagine the uproar if a cafeteria worker at a school in the US started managing to whip up gourmet eats (or at least way better than the Sysco's finest HFCS & sodium barrage typical of school lunches) and serve them, especially if she was making things herself and not buying from the vendors they had contracts with? You think vendors wouldn't throw a fit at the money they are losing? You think some "zero tolerance" bureaucrat wouldn't get pissy that the school food wasn't anything like the other schools in the area and wasn't in accordance with some obscure bureaucratic guideline?

Don't drag partisan politics into something that is just plain human stupidity.

The one side of this issue makes the suggestion upon which we will say that the school food should be allowed to have the provision to the students because this is the hard working cook who does the cooking of this and the kids need to eat this. The other side of this says this is not the fair thing to the kids who go to the other schools.

The one side says that kids enjoy good food and this is the good thing because they are not like the children in the United States of the Americas who do the eating of food which satiates the diseased thyroid of them. Now you might be thinking to the self of you MEOW ARE NOT THE PEOPLE WHO DO THE EATING OF THE BAD FOOD MERELY THE LAZY INDIVIDUALS. I will say to you that you are part of the problem because you do not provide the awareness of the thyroid disease. By providing to the students the food upon which tastes good it is possible to establish who has the disease of the thyroid because this individual will eat until which time there is not the stopping of the person. For this reason this side is saying let us provide for them the food so we can do the early catching of who is suffering of the disease of the thyroid of them.

The other side of this is saying look there are others in the country which is Sweden who would prefer to not have the meatballs or the ABBA themed cereal or the Roxette Brand Chicken Nuggets or the gummy fish or the Ace of Chicken Base in the soup of them. However this is what is forced on them because these are the official foods of the country of Swed ...

See, it applies to both sides. Again, this isn't a right/left, liberal/conservative, communism/fascism issue. Bureaucracy is bipartisan.

A talented head cook at a school in central Sweden has been told to stop baking fresh bread and to cut back on her wide-ranging veggie buffets because it was unfair that students at other schools didn't have access to the unusually tasty offerings.

Annika Eriksson, a lunch lady at school in Falun, was told that her cooking is just too good.

Pupils at the school have become accustomed to feasting on newly baked bread and an assortment of 15 vegetables at lunchtime, but now the good times are over.

The municipality has ordered Eriksson to bring it down a notch since other schools do not receive the same calibre of food - and that is "unfair".

Moreover, the food on offer at the school doesn't comply with the directives of a local healthy diet scheme which was initiated in 2011, according to the municipality.

"A menu has been developed... It is about making a collective effort on quality, to improve school meals overall and to try and ensure everyone does the same," Katarina Lindberg, head of the unit responsible for the school diet scheme, told the local Falukuriren newspaper.

However, Lindberg was not aware of Eriksson's extraordinary culinary efforts and how the decision to force her to cut back had prompted outrage among students and parents.

"It has been claimed that we have been spoiled and that it's about time we do as everyone else," Eriksson said.

She insisted, however, that her creative cooking has not added to the municipality's expenses.

"I have not had any complaints," she told the paper.

Eriksson added that she sees it as her job to ensure that the pupils are offered several alternatives at meal times.

The food on offer does not always suit all pupils, she explained, and therefore she makes sure there are plenty of vegetables to choose from as well as proteins in the form of chicken, shrimp, or beef patties.

From now on, the school's vegetable buffet will be halved in size and Eriksson's handmade loafs will be replaced with store-bought bread.

Her traditional Easter and Christmas smörgåsbords may also be under threat.

Parents and pupils alike find the municipality's orders distasteful.

Fourth-graders at the school have even launched a petition in protest against the decision to put a lid on Eriksson's passion for cooking.

xl5150: The funny thing (well, not as funny as it is tragic) is that all of you are crying about how unfair it is that she has to stop because it's "unfair to the other schools," yet when your "President" Obummer wants to do the same thing with wealth, all of a sudden he walks on water.


The later mostly wishes to RAISE the majority to the level of the few - this school district seems to want to lower the few to the level of the many (which would be fine if it was a case of making cancer victims cancer free like most people).

Oh and I doubt a small (or even a large) increase on the tax levels of incomes over (say) $1 million would have any effect on the lifestyles of the 1% and certainly not get them even close to living the same lifestyles as the bottom 1%.
