WIS-TV weighed in on Richland Two's meal debt mess on August 29th. Read it here.
Supt. Davis told WIS-TV: "Students were not, and will not be, denied food, regardless of their debt status."
In other words, free meals for all. Just start running up your debt, kiddo.
Wrong! Those that can pay, should pay. If they spend their lunch money elsewhere (at the Apple Store (and I don't mean on apples), at Chick-fil-A, at McDonald's, at GameStop), they don't get lunch.
Those that can't pay need to fill out the forms for free or reduced-price meals. Otherwise, they pay or they don't eat.
Kids (and parents) learn today that they don't have to follow the rules. Just ignore them; you'll get food, anyway.
What are they learning about budgeting and responsibility in Richland Two schools? Nothing!
