Making a child go without food because their lunch bill has not been paid is out of the dark ages. The child has no responsibility concerning the issue. The lack of nourishment adversely impacts the students ability to learn. If one is hungry ones focus is on ones hunger and little else. Shame on those who not only participate in this but for allowing it to happen. What's wrong with you? Depriving children of lunch is your best solution? It's barbaric.
