Mixed Messages

Ya know, sometimes big institutions, like schools, find themselves working at cross purposes. For instance, school rules don't allow drinks in the classroom, and common sense says teenagers don't need caffeine and sugar all day. Technically, the only time a student could imbibe is lunch and before/after school. Yet, today, Coca-Cola employees set up a machine in the stairwell 50 feet from the door of my room, even though it's nowhere near the cafeteria and students are only allowed in during school hours.

I've written about this before, but just thought I'd note the further encroachment of the Sugar Merchants as they prey on our kids.
