I will agree about food safety. My OP was a cut paste from a friend...
To answer your question about kids being taught in schools---I will say NO! In the school my kids went to in CA, they were given a choice of what temp the HB was cooked. I didn't know this until the next time I took the kids out to eat, and my then kindergardner ordered his HB rare! I had to explain that the internal temp needed to be much higher to kill the bacteria, and med-well was much better.
Now, where we live, there is no home ec class, no drivers ed, no music in most schools, pitiful!
If someone has to teach you how to be happy , then you are not truly happy....Happiness is a state of mind.
