(Mensaje se repite en EspaƱol) (For a national view of public education reform see the end of this blog post) LAUSD reports that its change of menu for its students has not been received with much success. Maybe this has something to do with a complete and longstanding inability by LAUSD leadership to create the requisite culinary knowledge and taste that it must build in the communities where it schools exist in order for students to want to eat a wholesome diet. Poor diet is just another indicator of an educational and social system designed to destroy instead of nurture minority and poor children. Eating wholesome food is a learned characteristic of any society that completely educates - in the broadest sense of the word - all its children. In French society from birth babies are TAUGHT to eat healthy food that is presented as part of the country's distinct cultural identity as early as baby daycare (creche) from the time their mothers have to go back to work when their babies are 3 months old. In addition, those mothers had already received prenatal care to insure that their prenatal diet while carrying the child maximized the possibility to fulfill the genetic potential of their child.
