Senseless in Seattle

Seattle’s schools are in crisis, so the teachers’ union has endorsed a school board candidate whose priorities are banning sweetened drinks and limiting military recruiters. Shark reports:

The Seattle School District faces a $35 million budget shortfall and the need to recruit a superintendent. The Seattle Education Association’s response to this crisis includes endorsing Brita Butler-Wall for school board. Butler-Wall’s main objective is to ban all sweetened beverages (including chocolate milk) from the public schools.

She also wants to limit military recruiters in high schools, because their brochures don’t warn that military service “may result in injury, disease or death to oneself or to the citizens of other nations.”

Seattle schools must not teach students about war, since apparently graduating seniors don’t know what soldiers do with those guns.
