Chicago’s public schools are banning homemade lunches. In order to assure that students eat healthy lunches, students are required to eat cafeteria food or go hungry. Many are going hungry.

That’s your law of unintended consequences in a nutshell: in the interest of ensuring students eat well, students are going hungry.

But let’s not be distracted by the predictable failure of the policy. This would be a travesty even if it worked perfectly. Who do these people think they are, to usurp control of children’s diets from their parents?!
