Weekly Reader News - Senior;12/5/2008, Vol. 87 Issue 12, p3
The article presents the views of student reporters Ashley Nordahl and Paul O'Neal on whether schools in Newburyport, Massachusetts should ban candy and other sweets. Nordahl believes that the school district should ban sweets because there are too many overweight kids in the town and if they are overweight, they can get sick. O'Neal asserts that bringing sweets to schools should be allowed and it is the parents' job to make sure their children do not eat too many sweets.
