Uhmm....where is the outrage at the parents?

These weren't kids in a poverty situation....

These were kids whose parents opted for a pre-paid lunch program, then didn't pay their bill. This is entirely on the parents, not the school. Just as if I forgot to get lunch money, it'd be on ME as a student. I think people are really casting stones at the wrong target here...

The real ones at fault are the deadbeat parents.

Welcome to real life: if you do not pay you will not eat.

Since schools are supposed to be preparing youngsters for life this will be one of those lessons that actually mean something.

And how about those that have a single parent? or those who are less fortunate financially at home....? They need to get a job in middle school to pay for thier school lunch?

you're a little extreme buddy.

So deal with it sometimes lif bites you in the rear.Do the people who think this is wrong wonder why the country is in such bad shape? maybe if everything was free then things would be better??

I came out of Dairy Queen the other day and a guy asked for a dollar. I told him I didn't have one ( the truth) he said that all you white people should go away. I ask who would take care of him then? He cursed some more

Firstly, it concerns me that we refer to these CHILDREN as being "in debt". It's like they are being indoctrinated into our debt driven wage slave society in 3rd grade now...

That being said, I don't understand the outrage over this food issue. If the parents can't or won't keep the lunch cards funded then the parents should provide the child with a lunch to take with them. That's how it has worked for as long as I know of. Before that there weren't lunches served at school at all..

Feed you children people. It's your responsibility to get food in their tummies regardless of school policies!

This is very true. My only issue with the school is they tossed food, instead of billing the parents. A better solution would have been to call the parents, and tell them to either come pay the bill, or pick the kids up and feed them. The entire situation was handled poorly.

Utah Kids in Tears...

Here is another link.

Poor or not, having acct money or not - I just can't conceive of this traumatic form of waste. How can a child be expected to perform 8-hour school shifts on so little fuel and after a humiliating trauma?

This guy's riled up! Here is a rant this man calls A Message to Uintah Elementary School [LANGUAGE ALERT!]
