In an ideal world yes, but those pesky parents and sensationalistic media will find a way to nail the department, school and teachers. Sad isn't it?
Mate, it's way more than that. There is a strong case for teachers being interested in kid's welfare out of school hours. Many people aren't aware, but a lot of kids get to school unfed, sick, unrested, or worse. Interested teachers may be the only defence the kids have. You can bet the parents get mad when teachers take action, but thank God they do it.
Now it's likely the rule wizdofaus dislikes is just a dumb rule. But it's fair for the school to make it, and fair for parents to challenge it too.
