Your school has decided to confine all students to the school grounds at lunch time. Students wil not be allowed to go home or eat out and may only have lunch supplied at the school caterer. As President of your Students’ Association, write a letter to your school principal protesting against the new rule. Provide three reasons why you and your fellow students oppose this plan.
Dear Principal,

Bereaving students of choices- A leap in the dark

In consideration of the school’s prime principle of nurturing an environment in which students play a pivotal role, the recent proposal put forth to confine students to school grounds for lunch really leaves me in perplexity. It is claimed that the initiative is in the interest of our students. Be that as it may, as President of Students’ Association, judging from the recent poll on students’ preference, it appears that the plan runs in contradistinction to the stereotyped way the school perceives. Prior to probing into the possibility of putting the restriction into practice, it would be better-off apprehending the drawbacks deep down.

The justifications to which students’ opposition to the act can be ascribed are manifolds. Probably the first recurring to my mind is the students’ freedom of choice. Gone are the days when teachers assume an overwhelmingly dominant part in implementing school’s policies. These days, with the great strides in the promotion of equality, it should be noted that students deserve considerable respect in the decision-making process in school. Confining them to school grounds without much regard to students’ perception, irrefutably, is tantamount to depriving them of liberty for the plan limits the variety of food, in turn marring the relationship and mutual trust between students and teachers, both of which constitute an inextricable affiliation with the school’s success. Do unto others as they would have done unto you. Should teachers put themselves into students’ shoes, isn’t it

    “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Milton Friedman published a book with this very title in 1975. Is it not a great example of how the world works? When it comes down to it, lunch is being paid by someone. That very “free” lunch is costing someone something. It may not be the recipient, or even the person giving it to them, but someone is paying for it. This all comes to show how the economy, and even the world, works. America’s government has gone through many different stances on this statement…
