Water revolution underway but schools balk at solutions


In many California school cafeterias, there's no water available to drink.

Hard to believe but true. Drinking water is not available in many school cafeterias throughout CA.

A California bill requiring schools to offer drinking water at no charge to students has passed the Senate and Assembly and awaits the governor's signature — a fairly sure thing because the governor sponsored the bill, according to the Los Angeles Times.

I'm glad to see this. For one of my granddaughter's drink of choice is "Water." My other granddaughter prefers "milk". It sure would be nice if both were afforded their preference when starting school in the next couple of years. One can only hope.
