crosswalker Posted October 27, 2006 Share Posted October 27, 2006 *grumbles about the public school system* Before I comment on this countries failing public school system, lemme just say Home-Schoolers Rock!!! (evven iif we cand spel) No, the school board doesn't have the responsibility to regulate what goes into the vending machines. For this topic, the old addage "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink" fits nicely. If the Twinkies and cup cakes are selling, then obviously the students are buying them. No one is forcing students to buy out of vending machines, so we can conclude that if the students are buying the twinkies then they want to buy the twinkies. If the people really wanted healthy food in vending machines, they'd stop buying the lard/sugar lumps that are sold now and eventually (unless they have horrible staffing) the vending machine companies would offer different food that sold better (maybe food that has the potential to go bad for instance) Oh, btw, this topic is a good idea, being a High-school debate student, with the best coach in the world, I love a good...er...discussion.
