All of you have spent your entire arguments on your own selfish thoughts about utilitarian principles surrounding a group of students. What you should really note is the fact that its in the best interest of the sufferer not to be put in the danger in the first place FOR HER OWN SAKE...but you all complain about the lengths the other kids, who are in NO danger at all, have to go through.
TO the extent of..."lets force the sufferer to have an allergic reaction so she leaves us alone" that is morally bankrupt!! lets all get together a shower a pupil in peanuts, lets all bring in peanut butter sandwhiches?!? that could KILL.
Forearmed with that knowledge, any idiot who took your advice would be guilty of murder. Knowingly doing something that will get someone else killed so they can live as they want. Remind you of a certain Israelite King?
I think that depends on the severity of the peanut allergy; but that's why I said they should announce it ahead of time, in order to force the girl to stay home. After enough days of missing school, her parents will be forced to try out different educational alternatives.
There is NOTHING selfish about that. What's selfish is this girl's parents expecting the entire school system to conform to their one child. That's the definition of selfish.
