what is it about Utah and school lunches?
Back in 2014, one of their districts famously threw out children’s school lunches in front of their faces based on their parents’ unpaid lunch debt, wasting tons of food and humiliating the children.
Nine years later, they’re telling the kids to eat bugs.
To save the earth or whatever, and get extra class credit, though let’s face it, the humiliation is the same.
According to Fox News:
A middle school in Utah’s Nebo School District gave sixth-grade students “disgusting” insects to eat last week as part of an English assignment on climate change, claiming it would save the environment from cows which were “killing the world,” according to a mom who spoke with Fox News Digital.
“Middle schoolers loved the ‘ewww’ factor, many of them gave bugs a try (and even a few staff members!). Many thanks to our English teachers for creating fun and engaging lessons,” the Spring Canyon Middle school said about the March 7 assignment.
Bugs were purchased from a commercial site that is “safe for consumption,” the district said.
The mother of one of the students – Amanda Wright – told Fox News she believed the kids were being subjected to “indoctrination” into a “dark climate change religion.” She challenged the school’s principal Alison Hansen on the assignment after her daughter found it uncomfortable.
