Macaroni and cheese again?
Students at a junior high school near Texas' Gulf Coast have staged a four day boycott of cafeteria food to press for more menu choices.
The Victoria Advocate reports that all approximately 32 students at Austwell-Tivoli Junior High School in Tivoli brought their lunches from home for four days last week and shunned offerings from the school's cafeteria.
They're demanding less menu repetition and more choice in what is served, including salads.
President of the seventh-grade class Mckenzi Simmons says boycott was a vocabulary word in a recent Texas history class, and students put what they'd learned into action.
Superintendent Antonio Aguirre says the menus are based on Texas Department of Agriculture policy.
But he commends the kids for "taking power of their own learning."
