Let’s hear it for kid bloggers! Yay!!!
This Wired News post is about the 8 year old in Scotland who took a camera to school to document the non nutritious lunches she was being fed at school. She can’t any more because the government won’t let her take a camera to school. This website, gone viral, is creating a firestorm as kids from around the world are sending in photos of their own lunches.
In two weeks her district was letting kids have unlimited salads, fruit, and bread. She’s a neat kid because instead of basking in glory, she decided to ask followers to donate to Mary’s Meals that helps kids get lunches in africa.
I find this to be a restriction of freedom of speech but think many us schools will do the same. When people want to hide from the truth - they ARE hiding something. Period.
It seems that “big brother is watching” can go both ways…governments are starting to realize that the same tools they use to keep an eye on us can be used to keep an eye on them.
No words. I’m just stunned.
