..since I was in school. I graduated high school in 2003...Not that long ago...but I was looking at schools in the district and the middle school I went to for 8th grade (where my kids will go) has changed sooo much....They now have uniforms (I think all middle schools do now) but these were things that they do no allow at school...
Other prohibited items include: stereos, jam/boom boxes, DVD/CD or mp3 players, video games, toys, cards of any type, candy from home, sunflower seeds, inhalants, “white-out”, aerosols (hairspray and antiperspirant/deodorant (solid sticks are ok)), evaporative markers with obvious fumes (non-toxic label is allowed), etc.
CANDY??? SUNFLOWER SEED? SPRAY DEODORANT?? Some of the other things I can see banning. This is just insane!

I actually read a report of a grade school that had banned all sweets. The cafeteria served no sugary desserts and students were banned from bringing them. Birthday parties and other celebrations in the classrooms were free of sugary snacks.
Know what? The kids adapted. Grades and attendance went up. Discipline problems and waist lines went down. The kids now ASK to have broccoli more often.
As for this particular ban - my guess is that some drugs can be disguised as candy and it's part of the general war on keeping kids drug free.
