Silent lunch?

A Roman Catholic elementary school adopted a “silent” lunch policy after three recent choking incidents. Silent means the kids can whisper – but other than that they have to be silent.

The school says it’s because the lunch room could become very noisy and the teachers were unable to hear the child choking.

I’m sorry, but this is plain ridiculous. Kids are quiet all day in school and in class. Lunch seems to be a natural time to engage in reasonable conversation. They are kids after all.

Are there really not enough adults watching the kids that they can’t see choking happen? Makes me appreciate being homeschooled more.
