Kids Suffer When Evil at the Top Infects All Levels of Culture
In my home state, at Kingston, Pennsylvania, schools have threatened its poorest citizens that unless their school lunch bills are paid up, their children may well be lobbed into foster care.
Draconian notes were sent to upwards of a thousand. The schools say they are simply trying to garner about $20,000 from the families. They say four families each owe $450. Parents have been told unsatisfied bills could well lead to court dependency hearings and then children-family separations on charges of failing to provide food.
The schools’ lawyer claims his letter isn’t a threat. It is, he offers, an attention-getter.
Apparently the schools had thought to give its poorest children peanut butter and jelly sandwiches until legal advice suggested that might be construed as giving in.
