To piggy back off of the Lent and food thread; is it really a schools job to cater to every students needs even when it is not related to academics? I personally think that catering to every students academics as much as we do already pushes the line. When you go so far as to say we need to worry about what each individuals is and is not wanting to eat at school, this go beyond the bonds of necessary. If someone wants to be a vegetarian, that is their business, that is fine, but don't let it impact me. If it costs me as a teacher or a citizen any extra time, money, or concern; then that is a waste. The idea behind Lent and giving up certain foods is a sacrifice. During a sacrifice, you are going to have some experience of suffering. That suffering could come from that craving of food that you can't eat, or it could come from not really being excited about the choices that are actually available to eat due to that sacrifice. The end result is the same, it is your sacrifice and not everybody else's. So in the case of a school, I don't believe that everybody else should have to worry about the individuals and the choices they are making. You make due on your own. Now if only we could get this same idea leaked back into the classroom a little bit as well.
