School Punishes Students With Cold Sandwiches

Illustration for article titled School Punishes Students With Cold Sandwiches

Students at Pennsylvania's Camp Curtin School couldn't seem to clean up after themselves in the cafeteria, so the principal took away hot lunches for a week. Instead, they were fed cold sandwiches, fruit, and vegetables. He explained, "We created the opportunity where we could show them what the bare minimum would be." I don't know what schools are serving these days, but if I had been forced to eat a turkey sandwich every day it would have definitely taught me a lesson — about "giant mound of french fries" not being the foundation of a balanced diet.

My father packed 'cold lunch' for me every day of my school career...including high school. I didn't know that qualified as a punishment. For plenty of kids, a sandwich and veggies would be absolutely wonderful, given the alternative of having nothing.
