Various school lunches from around the world. School lunch doesn't really represent the best a country has to offer, but we still love it, because we grew up on it.
I find it interesting that all these kids in the UK can use real knives for every meal at school, while our US kids aren't even allowed a plastic knife to spread their butter for fear someone may get stabbed!
I honestly can't understand why they don't allow knives or silverware in US schools. If a child is going to hurt another student, they are going to hurt another student. They may use their silverware, a pencil, their fists, their own weapon....There has never been a reported case of a child in the UK using silverware to attack another child. We also give them free range of scissors and compasses to draw circles. You can't deny your kids a basic skill 'just in case'.
You guys don't have knives in your schools? How do you cut things when you eat :S
I remember a kid stabing me with a plastic fork.
Please no foul language.
