I'm going to as you the same question I've asked everyone else who shares your feelings. what do YOU propose as a punishment? I'm talking a punishment for the exact circumstances outlined in the article.


make them sit in at break times, better still make them come back during break times to clean up the mess. always worked at my school, there was never any need to restrict food or use food in such a way.

i remember doing graffiti on a desk, my punishment was spend break times sanding down said desk to get rid of the graffiti. they did'nt go "oh my god! we are going to take away food"

the punishment should match the crime, so in this case make them stay behind or come back during their time to clean it up. let the parents know to, some parents could'nt care less but alot of them actually do and can resolve the problem at home.

Sounds to me like you're basically suggesting either imprisionment or slavery. Ohhh, see what I did there?

And for the freaking record, ONE MORE TIME. THEY DIDNT TAKE AWAY FOOD. They gave them DIFFERENT food.

Boo hoo.... the kids got actual food to eat as a punishment... a PUNISHMENT??

Jesus.... some people need to get a grip.
There are plenty of kids and fully grown adults the world over who would love to have regular food given to them every day.



This is a quote from the article -


Joseph Stalin, who tightened his grip on power by deliberately starving millions of his subjects to death during the Holodomor, would endorse the general concept.



I mean seriously.... Get a grip.


Maybe next time the kids will behave themselves, discipline is not always a bad thing.

Since when is making your child eat cold sandwiches wrong? LOL Where my kids go, if the students misbehave they either have to eat lunch alone or they have to walk the fence alone at recess. When I was a kid, we got whapped with a ruler.

I'll raise hell when the school tells me I can't send lunch with them and they have to eat what the cafeteria is serving. That'll be something to talk about.


Yeah i also send in a lunch with my kids everyday, we save money, they eat a descent lunch, much better than the school's lunch's I might add. What is the big deal? The cruel punishment in my opinion would letting them starve and not feed them, so what they ha sandwhichs, who the heck cares!! Don't like the school system then home school! Why are people upset over this??

Just remembering the food in most Russian schools - personally I would prefer sandwiches


To be serious - the situation is awful. The kids must eat a good hot meal.

Why? Has every meal you've ever eaten been a "good hot meal"?

And if the answer is no, are you a derelict of society now? Do you feel you've been scarred for life from eating a meal at room temperature?

Since when is it a "right" for every kid to have every meal they eat at school be hot? It's no wonder kids these days have such a sense of entitlement.

Title is a little misleading don't you think? The kids did get food not like they went hungry. So they get a sandwich instead of a hot meal like millions of workers across the country.



Any money the kids parents payed for it tho and because it goes to the Company the teacher would have had to take the money out of there own pockets, sooo the teacher punished themselves realy xD

It's not the school system's job or responsibility to provide food for children.

The End.

I read the story and it seemed that the title could have just as easily read "Children taught to clean up after themselves and appreciate free hot meals provided to them by eating cold sandwiches."

I think children should be taught to appreciate what they are given and clean up after themselves. The children I come across are so entitled and spoiled and bratty these days that it kind of makes me a little sick.

The parents were probably upset because they actually had to take time to cook their children dinner that week.

"Linden grab a TV dinner!" says mom "BUT MY TEACHER MADE ME EAT DRY TURKY SAMMICH AT SCHOOL MAA!" says Linden "Why?" questions mom. "Cus me and Bill were talking and playing when we were done our work and our teacher took away the Roast beef ones that we were getting." replys linden. "...Damn i gotta make food now dont i..." says mom.

This was my childhood...i did work fast and so did my friend skylar were both 2 math and English grades above what we should be, I read at collage level in grade 11, Him and I both study theoretical sciences, mabe the teacher was being Dumb because they were little kids and the board dosent hire people to teach anymore they hire people who like the good pay, ive only met 3 teachers who care in my 13 years of school.

Why is it a waste of money to pay for food?
I am not concerned with anyone paying other than the children who ate. If you read what I said, it was about the kids appreciating something they got for free. If there is a part I missed that indicates that these children all actually have jobs and pay for their own meals then I apologize.

How is it a waste of money though?

Food one way or the other should never ever be used as punishment/conditioning.
For one thing, this shows that the school seriously needs a brush up on how to run a school. If my child was a student there I would go to the board and demand a review of qualifications of whoever ordered this.
I know I read an article here awhile back where a school ordered a hot lunch only program which was bad enough but this is outragous.
Yeah yeah they ate but like I said "food one way or the other should never ever be used as punishment/Conditioning"

i believe it would be seen as cruel if parents used food as punishment.

"you did not tidy your room, not proper meal for you boy! (evil laugh)". so my problem here is why schools think it is o.k. to use those kind of methods.

what next? if they misbehave ferther they will be put on bread and water?

it works really well...50 years ago, i got sent to bed with no supper for not doing chores...only happened once...after that 1 time, chores got done, and i ate every night from then on.

And when you have a kid like me who will sit there awake untill there parents are asleep and then sneak downstairs and eat? Each generation learns...My little sisters dont get caught for stuff i did. Each generation gets more cunning as we go.
