staplermofo: We aren't hard enough on crappy parents.Pay for your kids' stuff! Keep on top of stuff! You have to look out for them! Expecting the world to be nice to your kid is horrible parenting! If you don't want a kid, put it up for adoption early! Put more thought into teaching your kids to live in a crappy world than into making the world less crappy to your kids.
log_jammin: shiat happens.

DON.MAC: It could be worse. Some idiot will now be listed as "child lunch stealer" on google for ever. Nothing like stealing your own career.

ytterbium: don't harm kids because of bad parenting
diaphoresis: I'm betting the student's parents were Democrats... lazy, good for nothing, we think we are owed something, drug craving Democrats. Get off your asses and pay your F*ing bills!/Brought to you by the Republican National Committee
AverageAmericanGuy: It's unclear to me why children or families would be charged for lunch at a public school.Like public schools themselves, these are public services which should be free to all. If you feel you'd rather bring your own lunch or attend a private school, then that is on you to find a way to pay for it. In the meantime, the public services are available to you.If the school can't provide lunches to all with the current budget, then cut the lunches completely. Either all get lunches or none get lunches. This half-assed lunch program hurts the poor who need the lunches the most but are least able to pay.
log_jammin: "We understand the feelings of upset parents and students who say this was an embarrassing and humiliating situation. We again apologize and commit to working with parents in rectifying this situation and to ensuring students are never treated in this manner again."I'd think that they could stop taking already served lunches out of the hands of children all on their own, without the need to "work with" parents.
supichoo: Just like Jesus would do.
ninotchka: Poor people get lunch for free and don't have debt. This taking away lunches would affect my kid. I don't qualify for free lunch or even discount lunch so I have to pay for lunch. My son loves to buy school food from time to time. Sometimes I forget to pay his bill. A lot of that has to do with the fact that a previous county used a credit sort of system. This county doesn't. So I get 50 calls demanded that 50 cents I forgot to pay.So fussing about poor people is a waste of time. They don't have a bill or an account. They get it free.

staplermofo: ytterbium: don't harm kids because of bad parentingThis is the attitude I can't stand. Bad parenting hurts kids. Virtually no amount of institutional asshattery can match bad or inadequate parenting's harm to children. The idea that the school will always take care of the kids is way too trusted. Mistakes happen, stuff is overlooked, whatever, but you should be on top of paying for your kid to eat. How the kid eats should be one of those things parents don't let slip. The school screwed up, but the parents screwed up too.
