I've got two stories for you. File the first one under appalling and ridiculous. A 7-year-old Filipino Canadian student has been repeatedly punished by his school for his eating habits. Basically, he's just eating Filipino style -- with a spoon and fork. The school administrators find this a "disgusting" habit.
When the mother contacted the principal, “He said, ‘Madame, you are in Canada. Here in Canada you should eat the way Canadians eat.’
The mom filed a formal complaint.
The principal, not the kid, should be getting disciplined.
