A Pennsylvania school came up with a novel way of dishing out punishment for its students for behaving badly during lunch: No hot meals.
The pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students at Camp Curtain School have received cold sandwiches this week as punishment for misbehavior, including failure to clean up after themselves, school officials told The Harrisburg Patriot-News.

If the kids were told BEFOREHAND that if they misbehaved that they would not be entitled to a hot lunch and they still broke the rules then that is their problem.

2) This is seems to fall under the category of cruel and unusual punishment, no?
For those who think that the punishment is no big deal try and look at it from a psychological perspective. The institution that is school is becoming more and more like a jail every day. Supression of information, lies from those in charge, things in place to make sure that certain groups profit highly (think contracts with security and surveillance), random interrogations by police officers or worse...fake ass toy cops who think they are gods due to a teeny bit of power...and now sandwiches, lol. If you have ever been arrested you understand about that last one.
