I thinkschools should raise money by selling snacks and other items to students. Why? Someschools are closing down because they can’t afford to stay open, they can’tafford to purchase the things students need to fulfill, or widen theireducation in the class’s rooms. For example: there were a list of schools in Kansas that wereforced to close down stated in an article by ben Steven ” fine is a subjectiveword, though when a state finds some of its schools don’t have enough money tokeep the doors open, it’s safe to say everything isn’t fine”. Up to six district schools closed thatfollowing year, following budget cuts that were assigned by republican Gov.
SamBrownback. Two of those schools districts, Concordia unified school districtand Twin Valley unified district, announced earlier that month that they wouldend the year early on because they lacked the funds to keep the schools open.There also was a daycare that closed down in Richmond based off affordability.There has been a lot of financial instability in school funds and providing forstudents and their academic education. Other students that do not have money toafford snacks have to drink whatever their provided with as regularrefreshments lunch.
This wouldbe a solution in many ways. How you’re wondering? This would also stop studentsfrom leaving campus to buy snacks and other refreshment items. Fewer studentswould get in trouble for selling snacks on campus. The school would be makingmoney for the right reasons. There are also cons to selling snacks in theschool system. There are bad effects of sugary snacks that could affect youlike: obesity, having high blood sugar, heart disease and other health issuesthat come along with eating junk food, or sugary snacks. This would be badbecause too much secreted insulin can cause low blood sugar levels leaving youfeeling shaky and craving other types of sugar.Whendeveloping a pattern for eating low nutrition foods, teens and childrenincrease their risk of developing diet related diseases.
When thinking aboutthis topic; there aren’t just negative results. There are also pro’s as for diabetics;they need something with sugar on them. Kids will also spend more money onsugary snacks than something healthy. Thecon is that selling these things affects your performance in school. Thechildren depend on the snacks to help them function in school. They are able tostay awake longer if they have a certain amount of sugar in their bodies.
Once theirsugar rush is gone their bodies will crash. The children then will get sluggishand might not pay attention while the lesson is being taught. They might geteasily bored or fall asleep.Anotherreason why I think they should sell the unhealthy snacks is because it savestime as well as its convenience. Since the snacks are available; they don’trealize it’s doing more harm than good.
It is up to the students to makehealthy choices when it comes to eating junk food. Having snacks in school makesstudents happy and it tastes good to them. If they don’t like what is beingserved at lunch they can get the sugar snacks provided. InConclusion, if children are well educated from when they are young then theywill choose healthier choices concerning whether or not to eat unhealthy snacksonce they get to high school.
I wouldn’t say that selling candy and sodas inschool is the problem. There are some snacks and drinks that still taste goodwhich doesn’t have too much sugar that can be sold in the school.
