You have got to be kidding me! Each school has a kitchen, paid for by the taxpayers, and a kitchen staff, paid for by the taxpayers. Why should the taxpayer be saddled with a bill for delivered pizza? My children attended private school, when those schools ordered delivered pizza, only the parents of the students paid for the food. The parents paid through tuition, fees, or extra money collected, not taxpayer funds. If public funded schools want delivered pizza, either the parents pay or raise the money. My taxes already fund schools. I do not mind, it is part of my responsibilities as a citizen. But, these "extras" should be funded by the parents! It is not my job to pay for "Lil' Johnny's" pizza party! With the test scores like they are, wouldn't the money be better spent somewhere else? With the stories of teachers having to spend their own money for supplies, wouldn't the money be better spent elsewhere? Food for thought.
