"Health gurus and nutritionists were outraged by news that a city school gives gym credits for selling hot dogs and soda.Rooftop Films returns to New Design High School on Friday, June 4th (music by Elephant Parade) and Saturday, June 5th (music by Dinosaur Feathers).
The Daily News reported Sunday that New Design High School in lower Manhattan allowed students to work the concession stand at Friday night Rooftop Films screenings to get the physical education credits they need to graduate.
"This makes me so angry. If that ever happened in my son's school, I would boycott the school. Taking care of your heart and your body is just as important as math and English," said Janine Whiteson, a nutritionist whose fifth-grader son attends Manhattan's Public School 290. [Daily News] (via)
