Nov. 18—Some things never change: A survey of students commissioned by Fairfax County Public Schools, in Va., shows unhappiness with the quality of meals served in schools, and the nutritional content of the options that are available.

Only 16 percent of students who participated in the survey agreed with the statement “I usually like the food served in the cafeteria,” while 79 percent disagreed—including 44 percent who “strongly disagreed”—with that statement.

Cafeterias in the school system’s 196 schools also got negative reviews for the variety of what they serve, with only 22 percent liking the array of options and 68 percent unhappy with them.
