I attended a North Carolina Commission meeting today, and I found it very interesting. The commission meets quarterly to discuss, initiate and approve state rules that affect young children. Norma Honeycutt, Executive Director at Partners In Learning, presides on this commission.
Media was present at this meeting resulting from national attention over a North Carolina preschool teacher who took a child’s lunch brought from home and replaced it with a more nutritious meal offered by the school. Members of the public were invited to address the commission and speech about their thoughts on the subject.
The media seemed especially interested in interviewing the individuals who expressed concern over the interpretation of currently adopted rules concerning nutrition.
