Newsflash: Johnny can’t read or eat Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. According to this story, a school in New Mexico is attempting to ban Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
The school has a lot of issues with Cheetos: Some students treat Cheetos as a replacement lunch — one that is far less healthy. Also, the students share their Cheetos, which spreads germs. And school janitors have to clean up red fingerprints everywhere as a result of the dye used in Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. I agree that Cheetos aren’t healthy. And those orange finger prints are a b to clean. It seems fine to ban them, I guess.
I just wish school administrators were focusing on other things. Like teaching students.
I don’t think my opinion on this is popular or in style. But I don’t really hold my school responsible for my children’s weight. I like recess. I’m glad they have PE. School lunch should be reasonable. Other than that, I count on teachers and school administrators to teach my kids things like Geography and History, Reading and Math. That’s a tall order in itself. I wish they wouldn’t spend time and resources worrying about Spicy Cheetos. Ban them. Don’t ban them.
Teacher’s time is valuable to me. I know they don’t get paid a lot and resources are spread thin. So get back to the business of making my kids miserable by giving them a bunch of work to do and teaching them boring facts!
That’s what I say. Of course, I’m addicted to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Just kidding. My stomach lining can’t take that kind of abuse.
