Montgomery County Schools Tackle the Big Issues

Donna St. George reports in The Washington Post that the Montgomery County Public Schools have decided to address a serious hindrance to the education of students in that county: strawberry milk.
In a move that seems to defy logic, the county has decided to take away strawberry milk:
 Come January, school cafeterias in Montgomery County will be missing the pinkest offering of the lunch line. Strawberry-flavored milk is on its way out. St. George reports:

“The drink is not as popular as chocolate milk and not as nutritious as plain milk, officials say. So at a time of growing concern about healthy foods for children, the pink milk has lost its place on refrigerated shelves in Maryland’s largest school system.”

Now while that’s all well and good, what was the reasoning that was given for taking strawberry milk off of the shelves?
