This is a powerful story. You did a great job of allowing the reader to walk a mile in the MC's shoes. I hope this is fiction because I can't imagine any teacher saying such a horrible thing. Though the good teachers far outnumber the bad ones, the truth is there are teachers who shouldn't be teaching. You did a nice job of getting your message across.
You have done a superb job with this article, spotlighting a very present-day problem for kids today who are the products of bad family choices in food. I think the P.E. teacher is all-too representative of P.E. teachers today in relation to kids like your MC. Your solution to the problem for the MC is a great one... a family problem, a family solution.
Wonderfully done and very inspiring!

Good luck and God bless!
I love a good running story! This one's very powerful. It's very sad that the cruelty described here goes on so often. What a great quote on the shirt!

God Bless~
