Every week there is another horrendous story coming out of the Baltimore County Public Schools.
The Baltimore Post and several other media outlets have reported on the violence that continues to plague the school system (and continues to be covered up by both BCPS and the Baltimore County Police Department).
Now we’re told that students in the troubled school system are being fed rancid food. That is not a euphemism for the anecdotally bad cafeteria food, folks. It is the horrid truth, according to Fox 45 News.
FOX Baltimore on Twitter: “Parents are outraged over the quality of food recently served to their children at Baltimore County Public Schools.https://t.co/g0JcMOYuXS / Twitter”

Adam Reuter, who is opposing Johnny O for the Democratic spot in this year’s County Executive election, also showed some disgustingness originating from BCPS cafeterias:

Folks, if that stuff was served in a commercial restaurant, the Department of Health would be all over the business owner with fines, shutdown notices, and public health warnings.
Yet BCPS administration just gets to shrug their shoulders and issue a lame comment that doesn’t even address the issue:
BCPS strives to provide nutritious and appetizing meals for all students. We encourage students and parents to share concerns about food items at any time with food service personnel.
Meanwhile, what is Johnny O doing about this latest debacle? He’s always quick to point out that he is a FORMER TEACHER and holds a PhD (which could stand for his BS being ‘piled high and deep’). Surely he has something to say about this, right?
The only comment our county executive made about food was his humble-brag about providing ‘record funding’ for the Summer SNAP program.
Perhaps it is time for the Maryland Department of Education to step in and stop the slide at BCPS. The school system administration clearly can’t do it alone, and FORMER TEACHER Dr. Johnny O certainly is not helping matters by throwing good money after bad in the dumpster fire of a school system.
Parents and taxpayers should express their outrage vehemently from now until November … when they cast their votes and let their voices REALLY be heard.
