    You can't make this stuff up: school bans talking at lunch

    Even more ludicrous is the reason talking has been banned. You'll have to follow the link to find out.

    My God....

    That's insane.

    How far can you take "safety".

    I mean what's next.
    Are you going to strap kids down in a bubble all day to make sure there is 100% zero risk of anything happening?

    It's just not possible.
    These people just don't want to have someone closely monitoring the lunch room is what it sounds like to me.

    I think it will have to be enforced on the teachers ideals and beliefs. In other words eventually they'll just leave it up to the teachers to decide if the childs loud behavior is a safety issue.

    Every time I think we've reached a point where things can't get more ridiculous, I'm proven wrong.

    Wow, one more reason to add to my ever stretching list of "Why I'm glad I never experienced the american schooling system".

    Is it 3am yet?

    We always had a silent lunch in middle school, it sucked. We also had to sit on one side of the table and face the teachers so we could be watched.

    Back to the article, why not just teach the kids to alert a teacher when they see someone choking?

    When we got to loud we had silent lunch....it wasnt very fun


    Well in Florida teachers can barely teach the basics...that may be a step to far. But for the rest of the country its a great idea.
