I have heard from several people lately about silent lunches.
What kind of lunches??
Apparently, now children are being asked to sit boy girl boy girl at lunch. And to eat without speaking.
Some schools are playing music. Wow. That's great. That really makes up for taking away what tiny bit of freedom these kids already have. Music. Stellar decision there, powers that be. But don't talk during that music. Or you will get punished.
They say it is for safety and so the kids will actually eat and not get up.
I'm just disgusted. The schools already have too much power over little kids anyway. And now they are taking away one of the tiny little perks of the day.
Lunch should be fun! You should get to hang out with your buds. Joke around. Trade food.
But, no dear public school. Let's just suck the fun out of lunch, too.
