On Evil Bake Sales

N.S. cutting cake out of school fundraisers - Nova Scotia - CBC News:
"Some parents of Nova Scotia school children say the province's rule on selling sweets at fundraisers is leaving a sour taste in their mouth. The Departments of Education and Health are banning "foods of minimum nutrition" from fundraisers – including cakes, the top prize in popular 'cake walks'."
'via Blog this'

Frankly, if schools were properly funded they would not have to have parents raising money.

Having said that ... PTA bake sales are a time honored tradition and it is the height of stupidity to try to mandate what can and cannot be sold in them.

Shaking my head.
