Spork Report: A Nice School Food Story from My District

by Bettina Elias Siegel on January 11, 2012

After a long holiday break I’ve resumed posting on The Spork Report, my Houston ISD school food blog which also appears on the Houston Chronicle‘s chron.com site.

Today I share a story about a dedicated elementary school principal who eats the school lunch with his students everyday and who, when hearing complaints about a particular entree, worked to get the problem solved.  In other words, a positive school food story for a change!  :-)

This is a nice story, and the message goes beyond the lunchroom. We can’t have great schools or make improvements without people who are willing to investigate concerns and advocate for the community they are to be serving.

While I’d agree we shouldn’t expect the principal to be in the lunch room every day, it shouldn’t be a foreign place to him either.
