According to the NYT, New Mexico has outlawed school lunch shaming. What is school lunch shaming? Well, it’s worse than it sounds and more common than you’d think. Kids whose parents are behind on payments can be shamed in several ways: “These practices can include making the child wear a wrist band or requiring the child to perform chores in exchange for a meal. In some cases, cafeteria workers have been ordered to throw away the hot lunches of children who owed money.” I still remember when school bullies were other kids.
