Does it get more ridiculous than the story in this NBC News article, Parents are warned their children could be put in foster care over lunch debt?
Here are two useful articles about this kind of “lunch-shaming” that I’ve previously shared:
‘It’s embarrassing to the kids’: Students who owe lunch money will get only a jelly sandwich, district says is from The Washington Post.
A school district in Pennsylvania sent letters this month to dozens of parents warning that if their debt for school meals was not paid, their child could be placed in foster care. Officials said it was not sanctioned by the superintendent. https://t.co/5eMr3ldTWE
