That's right! Saint Valentine is being outlawed, or at least diminished, in some public schools.

While not really a religious occasion, Valentine's Day has always been a fun day for young kids as well as old lovers.

Now, some concerned educators want to put a damper on the celebrations:

Forget the art supplies and fresh fruit. Where's the love?

Kids want Sweets and Treats! Not celery and pickles.

I think it would be swweeeet,if they would concentrate on educating our kids so they can function and get a job in today's market.
Leave it to the parents to decide their nutrition.
When did it become ok for the school system to take on the role of parents.

Some of these educators must have had very unhappy childhoods!

Maybe they can use cookie cutters to cut out hearts from tofu. Can they color the tofu with some kind of edible dye?

Valentine's day has never been a 'religious' anything, not even 'a not really'.

As to being 'tuned down' by schools, I think there are more important things to pay attention to.

A 'no news' days at foxnews if you ask me. That they have not found anything to put down the Obama's administration is surprising so "let's play up" the valentine crap card instead.

Sorry. I thought it was obvious. I was referring to our own children's nutrition expert - Michelle Obama!

Who knows, the source of this thread is fox news so it is a natural distortion that M. O. is being mentioned (negatively? after all she promotes healthy eating and may have a veggies garden on the WH grounds)
