Thank god the poor boy didn't eat the pork. Otherwise we would be reading about him getting stoned to death for being tainted. We should show no tolerance to those who have no tolerance.

Parents who insist on having special diets for themselves and their children should send lunches to school with their children. It is not the responsibility of the schools to ensure children adhere to special diets. Parents need to stop delegating their responsibilities to others.

But there's something tied to this that needs to be addressed, this child chose the meat from a choice but when I go into my supermarket I'm in most cases given ZERO choice on meat as most places now purely serve Halal meat, so there is me being forced if I want meat to buy and eat that because the time and pain to go and find a non Halal butcher is not cost effective.
Pork isn't about allergies, peanuts are.

I find this part very telling...
British Muslim groups have branded the decision to sack her “heavy-handed” and an “overreaction”. While Alison today claimed she was being made a scapegoat - and is now too afraid to ever take another job as a dinner lady.
Now why can't we have Muslims in the US come out to condemn conduct like this when it's pretty objectionable to everyone? This is the 3rd or 4th time this year I've heard something that really irked me in England with Muslims, waited to see the reaction from the Muslim community, just to be shocked in seeing they AGREE.
Oh how refreshing it must be to have folks there that will speak up and speak out. So.....with even the Muslims saying this was a crock and over-kill, why isn't she re-instated with back pay for harassment? I'd call this serious professional harassment, given the circumstances. It almost sounds like the Muslims there would too?
Unless you work in UK education don't talk about you don't know about.
It's very difficult to dismiss employees in UK education & I speak from personal experience.
There are so any warnings & procedures to go through & if the employer messes up at any stage the case wont be heard.
All these processes for dismissal of irresponsible & or careless employees take up valuable time from both support & teaching staff (who are paid to teach but may have other roles in the school as well) also funds that should be spent on education not on fighting ignorant & selfish employees.
If only the UK public knew how much wasted funds & time are spent on unreliable education staff who have little regard for pupil education but are kept employed by schools because of measures brought in by Governments to keep people in employment so they don't have to pay social security to people who are nothing but lazy hunts!
Please don't try & come back with quotes from the media & other sources because the reality is very very different.
