On Wednesday, the City Council took a stand on free school breakfasts. Lawmakers want to make it mandatory in every classroom. It's now available in the cafeteria.
It's something that the Bloomberg administration has no appetite for. They contend the requirement might lead to childhood obesity, as some kids might have the day's most important meal twice.
What the hell is the need for breakfast in the classroom? Is the cafeteria not good enough? Are we going to foot the bill for extra pest control? Will teachers now add garbage collection to their résumés? Doesn't food in the classroom district from learning?
