THE ROOT CAUSE OF SCHOOL FAILURE.

Not curriculum, not security, not money.  It's all about the Flaming Hot Cheetos.
Yet there is something about Flamin' Hot Cheetos that inflames critics in a way that other snacks -- including regular Cheetos -- never did. Some schools and districts, including the Noble Street Charter School Network and the entire Rockford school district, have banned Flamin' Hots by name, citing nutritional concerns.
The article mentions serious research into the science of obesity and addiction.  I suspect, though, that there are other influences on student performance with more substantial effects than a bag, or four, of spicy chips.
