Let me ask one in response, does the government have the right to intercede in what is deemed a public health problem?

The simple answer to your question is yes.
In this particular case though, I think the school districts, need to be the ones making this call. Concerned parents need to be the ones to make their wishes and concerns known. Many of these sentiments have been expressed already, and I agree with some of them.
The Federal government does intercede in what it has already deemed a public health problem by creating what is called Healthy People. Every decade we have new goals to reach, "Healthy People 2010, Healthy People 2020. Community health organizers for cities try and make goals based on the goals set in these “Healthy People” standards. Schools should be one avenue by which these goals are met, but the schools are the ones who need to be making the specific adjustments, no the Federal government. I’m usually not a fan of micromanaging, though I know it has it’s place and time, I do not believe this is one of those places, nor do I believe this is one of those times.
