This responds to the Aug. 23 article, "A family's plea: School ban asked in peanut allergy."
Even if the LoPrestis' stunt were to successfully ban peanuts from school, do they think that their child would then be safe?
How do you expect a school administration to effectively ban a food staple when it can't even keep out drugs? The LoPrestis can save the taxpayers money -- and probably their child's life -- by home-schooling their son until he is of the age where he can protect himself.
Would they expect the school to ban paper if he were allergic to wood pulp?
