ITS NOT ABOUT THE SANDWICHES
I agree with you on this. My problem is why punish all the kids?
Why not suspend the kid/s involved or talk to there parents about this?

because that would be to simple and does not teach the kids to accept food being used as punishment if they ever step out of line.

A cold sandwich is NOT cruel and unusual punishment.........and definitely not an extreme case of it. It's just a cold sandwich. 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.


Exactly what this person said here. I think the OP is a little off their rocker citing cruel and unusual. Even the title is misleading, not sure if the OP came up with it or just copied it. The school isn't withholding FOOD from children, it is withholding HOT FOOD, but still feeding them with sandwiches. Nothing wrong here, move along.

It's not about the food -- the parents pay for a lot of the kids' meals, paying the schools (except in cases of welfare or whatever).

Anyway, the problem is that there is an expectancy of service and a nonverbal contract/agreement when a parent pays for their child's meals. The punishment would be appropriate if the parents approved.

You have to be kidding me.. Outrage for enforcing rules? Have people actually BEEN in a school lately? Most of these public school kids are out of control running the teachers to the point of suicide and now there's outrage over providing a JUST AS NUTRITIOUS cold lunch as opposed to a hot lunch?

So what if not everyone was involved in the infraction, seriously it's not like corporeal punishment, it's not REALLY hurting anyone, it's just saying "hey kids, police your own or you all miss out on the tacos today"

I'm actually on the side of the school on this one..

One of the MAIN problems with America these days, besides the government corruption, is that some parents have "gotten too soft" on their children. It irks me so much when I read about parents complaining about some of the most trivial crap...I remember coming home when I was younger, and telling my mom that some kid called me a name at school...She said to be the better person and ignore him. It has worked for me so far.

But there are parents who would completely flip out over something like this. Kids are kids, and you aren't teaching them any responsibility if their parents are throwing a fit over their child being "mistreated," when it is nothing of the sort.

I only read the article once, but to me it sounded as if only the children who misbehaved received sandwiches. Maybe not, but still, is it really that big of a deal? Definitely not cruel punishment. Perhaps unusual, but where would we be without innovation? lol.

Do you want to hear the conditions we had to endure during the war? Or what some children endure EVERY DAY? Good for them! A sandwich is what the punk little brats need..... America is spoiled.... we have rights.... but people confuse luxuries as rights.... they are not the same!

They are not starving the children at all! Maybe next time they will clean up and behave!

The government makes an abusive and mindless master. That is the main problem with socialism. Free school (paid for by taxes) or freedom. We chose to be abused and taxed to death for free stuff. Freedom is dead.

Folks, the schools are programming our children like Pavloc Dogs. It is time for the socialist/communist/Facist (whatever the heck it is) to be stopped in our schools and for children to be put into learning situations. Not psuedo prisons, not social experiments, not mental programming institutions, a return to a freaking school!

I don't think this is too big of a deal. I live in Pennsylvania, only 40 minutes from Harrisburg and I can tell you there were times when I would have preferred a cold sandwich over the "hot slop" they were brewing.

Wait a minute, am i dreaming?!


A school punish there students by changing there school meals from hot meals too cold meals as punishment?


What if some of those students never liked there hot meals in the first place? Victory to them maybe?


I dunno why this story is posted on ATS for, i'm quite confused as i see a change in school meals no big deal at all and this school did as a "punishment"?

The kids won't do it again cause the whole school will hate them over it. It's like when someone is messing in class and the teacher keeps back the whole entire class.

I guess a few bad apples ruin it for the rest. It's called policing themselves. Maybe these good students will now get after the bad ones to start cleaning up after themselves. Sometimes kids will listen to kids more than adults. This isn't harsh punishment. It's showing their are consequences for their actions. Life isn't fair, they might as well learn it early in life. How many laws are established in society because some people can't abide by them? This is no different.
