Supt. on snack rules: 'Asinine' we don't have enough teachers...


ATLANTA ? Outrage is growing against federal restrictions on school bake sales and fundraisers.

"We don't have enough teachers in our classrooms and now we are expected to hire some type of food police to monitor whether we are having bake sales or not. That is just asinine," John Barge, Georgia state school superintendent tells WSB-TV.

Barge and the state Board of Education are attempting to get an exemption from the snack rules, which would allow only 30 sales per year per school.

Tennessee recently received such a restriction and even still, they were mad.

State Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman said it was "quite remarkable" there would even be a cap at all.
