I'm usually a fan of hard line approaches and creative incentives. But Edmonds (WA) School District went a little overboard, even for me, and it's probably a smart move that they are reversing course:
School officials are no longer taking hot lunches away from kids whose parents owe lunch money to the district.
For nearly two weeks, cafeteria workers were told to throw away the hot food students put on a tray if his or her lunch account was at least $10 behind. The child was given a cold cheese sandwich instead.
The Edmonds superintendent says he decided to suspend the policy because the district doesn't want to throw away food or embarrass students.
I don't want to think about what the punishment is for overdue library books.
