My idea is to emphasize that schools must meet a food allergic student's basic needs before the student can concentrate on learning.

Comments?  Suggestions?  Ideas?  This is my first draft, and I'd like to make a polished version to share.

Oooh-- I like it!! I need a bit of time to reflect in order to make suggestions, but my initial impression is that it's a great idea and in pretty good shape already.

Oooo. Squeel!!! This is so such a parallel to how the nursing field would manage it!! And to think how many folks here said I was way off in my comparison to maslow (and piaget). Oh and erikson, too.

Squeal! is right  I was just thinking tonight of what I could give to my DS's student teacher about food in the classroom.

The one who keeps using food in her lessons . . . . 

Something like this would be perfect.
