Beckwood 1 Courtney Beckwood Professor Jerry English 1020, Section 20 18 October 2015 Researched Argument Part Two For a long period of time, school boards have discussed possibilities of having junk food  at school, in particular middle and high schools. Some schools allowed the right for students to  either bring junk food to class, have vending machines for anyone to buy junk food or both. On  the other hand, the schools who are against the opposition and decides to ban junk food will not  let any student or faculty member come to school with junk food. My school was among the ones that would not let students bring junk food on school grounds. Ever since the early 2000s schools all across the country want to create a policy about  whether or not junk food can be permitted on to school grounds or not. There is no clear point  about what started the debate about junk food nor is there any document that states the oldest  debate about it. But what we do know is that this is a growing topic and will continue to grow for years to come. From the 20  century to the 21 , the 22 , and so on, this topic will be a topic that  will never have a precise ending point. This paper starts the debate being around 2004 with the  Seattle School Board making changes to their school policy about junk food. The schools who are against the opposition and decided to ban junk food will not let any  student or faculty member come to school with junk food. Before the 2011 decision of revising  Beckwood 2 the ban on junk food from the Seattle School Board, they banned the rights for junk food on  campus in 2004 [3]. The reason for this ban was because the school board wanted to make sure  that they “are determined to provide our students with healthy food options,…that includes  ensuring that foods and beverages sold at schools are healthy and nutritious” (Brita Butler­Wall  1). The San Francisco School Board has also decided to join the fight and ban junk food from  their schools [4]. The main reason they are cracking down on these unhealthy goods is because  they want to “begin looking at our school nutrition policy broadly in order to make it better”  (Kelly 1). The school board wants to stop the problem of childhood obesity, and one way they  wanted to approach that problem is by focusing “on more nutrition education and daily physical  education classes” (Kelly 2). The school board wants every child to make better decisions as far  as what they eat, and what better way to do that than to teach about nutrition harder than it was  regularly taught and to stop with the buying and bringing of junk food on campus? On the other hand, some schools allowed the right for students to either bring junk food  to class, have vending machines for anyone to buy junk food or both. In 2011 the Georgia State  Board of Education rolled out of the Smart Snack Rule [1]. The Smart Snack Rule is when all  types of food that are sold to kids during the school day has to follow the U.S. Department of  Agriculture nutrition guidelines along with the food that is given out in school cafeterias.  Although they opened the discussion up to the public and how some people stated that the Board  of Education should reconsider their choices, they eventually chose to keep their option to roll  out of the Smart Snack Rule. In addition, the Seattle School Board has decided to ease up on  their junk food ban in 2011 due to the loss of money once the ban was put into effect [2]. Instead  of buying the junk food on campus, which gives the school extra money, the students find ways  Beckwood 3 to get to a nearby gas station. They felt as if the original ban was completely hurting the school  revenue because of the strict policy, so the school board decided to bring up a board meeting to  discuss about revising the policy to where they can still ban junk food but, at the same time,  make revenue doing it.  My school was among the ones that would not let students bring junk food on school  grounds. Over the years, my school became stricter about the junk food policy than it was when I was there. At first, our school was able to sell junk food and soda during basketball games and  sell them for our Spanish club so we could raise money for a Spring Break trip to Puerto Rico.  Also when students sold junk food to other students during school (myself included as one of the sellers), some would even sell to the teachers to get extra money. However, the principal saw  junk food as a huge issue and they changed the policy again to where students and faculty could  bring healthy snacks like Nutri­Grain bars, Nature Valley bars and grapes. Us as children, we  would see this as an opportunity to sneak in “illegal” junk food while we brought healthy snacks  as well. After a while, the principal knew what we were up to and changed the policy again my  senior year to where the only snacks allowed were the ones that the school passed out during the  last period of the day. A lot of people were affected by this because our overall grades as a  school dropped compared to the previous year. Even though we couldn’t bring junk food of any  kind, I still decided to sell junk food to others to help them out.
