A Pennsylvania school district received backlash after warning parents their children could be removed from their homes and placed into foster care if overdue lunch bills are not paid.
Since when is public education a fascist and authoritarian group?
Oh boy. I'm not a father yet, but if I got a letter like that I'd be suing the school/district so quick.
This is why I don't like schools. They play shitty games, teach people unimportant shit then all of sudden after you follow all their garbage rules. They want you to throw whatever extra money you have at them like they deserve it.
I simply have to admit you are better off homeschooling your kid. I am highly intelligent but it would be a lie to say I got it from school. I learned more from going to the library every weekend as a child and hanging around my two uncle's who ran a dojo than I ever did at school.
My younger step sister who was homeschooled for medical reasons retains information far better than I ever could. I may be an excellent specialist but she is a much better generalist. While she had the same garbage curriculum we always had enough cheap tablets and computers for independent study. I would rather eat real food at home for half the price of school lunches as well. Plus if you were a bus rider you hardly ever had time for breakfast.
This is coming from a hood negro who came from humble means so take from that what you will.😇
Where is the outrage over separating children from families? I thought thats how we did things now?
Teacher here. I strongly disagree with taking kids away from their parents unless they are being neglected or abused in some way. Not paying their school lunch fees is not neglect unless the kid isn't being fed some other way.
Umm what the fuck. Just cause you're poor doesn't mean you own the kids.
alternatively you can give kids a cold cheese sandwich but have them pick up trash after school. japanese students even clean the school
And all those "school fundraisers" go towards a new stadium for a shitty highschool football team instead of paying for better produce and foodstuffs for the kids. Hmmm, so much for "schools need more money"
can you imagine explaining this to voters "look if you're to poor to pay for your kids lunch we will just take them away. that's our plain I’m the boss! How about that?!"
Good. There is no excuse for not feeding your child. It's not like you can't work with the school but if you can't spare $25 a week for your child, you shouldn't be a parent.
how is anyone too poor to pay for their kids food? even homeless people would bum 2 bucks a day for their kids to eat. these parents clearly have their priorities fuct. maybe not take the kids away, but a cps check to see whats more important to the parents than feeding their kid, is in order.
In the school's defense, if a child is chronically coming to school with no breakfast, and no lunch, and no money for lunch, that's a big red flag that there may be some criminal neglect. Feeding children is a parent's first responsibility.
Should the school district have sent that letter home? No , of course not. Debt is not cause for a child's removal. Gross neglect is cause for removing a child. Don't send letters, send CPS.
and yet elsewhere on the planet, parents give the kids lunch...not schools.
it’s “shameful” some parents don’t want to contribute towards feeding their own kids.... hold the fuck up how about we stop contributing to her fucking salary and stop paying out fucking taxes like everytime they raise taxes they claim better roads and schools.. well same shit public education same shit roads and teachers think they dont get paid enough for the 9 out of 12 months they actually work
Ok so separating children from their parents is ok now?
disgusting we can't even feed our own children but we always have money for Raytheon profits
I ignore all threats from the schools. They're always threatening me with garbage but nothing it quite so ridiculous is this. What can they do? just try, you little communists, and see what happens
Let's put it this way. If you had better lunches, maybe people would pay for them. If a person offered me his shit for 2 dollars it would still be more healthy than the shit you sell as lunch.
where's aoc now lol
