Guess our lunches now also has to follow the idea that good performance is bad, and that focus should be on the average.
Our schools focus on the morons who can't differentiate between plus and minus, and forgets about those who excel.
So it's not really something that is decided in Stockholm. It's local.
The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...
Not to mention that our good teachers left because they simply found better paying jobs which required less extreme abuse from pupils, homework etc., so we're stuck with teachers that don't even have a teaching degree. Sweden simply doesn't care for it's students.
Also, this one Lunch Lady is responsible for the high quality meals... Just because the schools implement her meal plan, it doesn't mean that it will taste the same from chef to chef... thus, the schools have to go out and find chefs that can match her quality. That, to me, is a logistical nightmare. It's much easier to do it the way the schools are currently doing it. Sure, it's unfortunate for the kids at her school, but this could mean better after school programs, better teaching and what not.
Which would you rather have. All of the kids having a super tasty lunch, or all of the kids have better access to teaching resources. I know what I would pick... and surprising (as a fat man) it's not the food.
I live near the city where this takes place. From what I understand, the local politicians signed a set of standards a while ago. In those standards, it says that food prepared in each of the schools in the city should be of equal quality.
On paper, this sounds good. But it didn't work out that way. I guess they didn't plan on a school chef actually caring about the kids and her job enough to make good food.
Edit: the reason for this is NOT budget related. The food she made was within the budget. Leftover shrimps and chicken at the vegetable table together with cheap vegetables so there were no waste. And kids who didn't like the food on the menu could mix together their own sallad with shrimps, chicken and whatelse.
The reason is just that the food was better than the other school's.

Gentlemen! I'm using government in the sense of administrative body that makes policy, not national government.
When survival is the goal, it's into the spider hole!
I'd pick both, mainly because I don't think the cost of school lunches has even close to enough impact to affect the quality of education.
Well depending on pay structure more work could have cost the school more.
whats cheaper and easier? Let her do what she wants, and dont make a big deal out of it.
There that was easy.
