First off, I want to say, Mr. Kenny Thompson, you sir are kick ass!
After hearing about a school in Utah that trashed lunches for students with delinquent lunch account balances, Thompson paid off 60 negative lunch account balances at Valley Oaks Elementary School.
He told KPRC, “I’m like, ‘Wow. I know that’s probably a situation at my school, and the school my son goes to, and the other schools I mentor at."
Thompson also noted that many students that have negative balances will skip the lunch line to avoid the embarrassment.
“These are elementary school kids,” he said. “They don’t need to be worried about finances. They need to be worried about what grade they got in spelling.”
