Rochester, NY to Get All-Vegan School
"Rochester River School in Upstate New York recently announced plans to be the first vegan self-sustaining school in the country. Following vegan schools such as California-based MUSE, Rochester River School plans to grow, harvest, and cook all of the food served on campus and create a curriculum centered on humane education."

Obama's new overtime law should nicely put the kibosh on the plan, schools are going to get even more expensive to run.

Child abuse.

Why? How is it different from sending kids to any other private school, or home schooling for whatever principle?
Is anyone forcing you to send your kids to that school?
It is a concept. Those not interested need not apply. Simple.

Your meme would work better if I was not already on record in favor of the law change.

Good on Obama for doing something, this exploitation had long been tolerated.

But we have got to got to do something about how much money we blow on our generally poor schools, and this overtime law take us in the wrong direction. There are a much of pieces out there about this. Super labor intensive schools will get the worst of it.

I was referring to children being deprived of health giving meat. Do try to keep up.

As long as it's a private school and provides the legally required academics they can dance in the full moon naked waving chickens above their heads if that floats their boat.

Many people have raised their offspring on a healthy vegan diet. In today's world, choosing a vegan diet is a fine alternative to other diets. Some cultures exist on no or minimal meat diets. I have kept up.
My point was that parents have choices. The school is not mandatory. So what's the big deal? Don't send your kids to that school. We do live in a relatively free country.

Thanks for your insight, Doctor. You should know the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Dietetic Association all state a vegan diet can be a healthy one for children. But what do they know?

Vegetarianism on the rise in Germany, but schools draw the line at veganism
Tofu schnitzel, tofu bratwurst, tofu kebab. It all exists in Germany and is easier and easier to come by. Popular as vegetarian options may be, a German court has ruled that veganism is too risky as a school meal option

Ya know I have my issues with Germany/Merkel/EU right now but they tend to get this sort of thing right.

Appeal to authority. Animal fats are important for brain development, so no, it's not a healthy diet for children.

Some stuff YOU CAN NOT GET WITHOUT FAT. Low fat eating is one of the great dumb ideas of the boomers.
