Bite Marks on School Utensils

I never went to school in Lansdale, but I lived there for a while off and on, and I thought this article was pretty interesting:

School District to Stop Reusing Cutlery

After students objected to using utensils that were often literally chewed up, the North Penn School District has agreed to end a longstanding practice of giving students plastic utensils after each meal and then washing and reusing them.

“It’s just gross. Really gross,” said Andrew Gawell, a sixth-grader at General Nash Elementary School in Towamencin Township. “You would sometimes get spoons with bite marks in them.”
