PA School Lunch Brouhaha Exemplifies All That is Wrong With Internet

July 22, 2019

I first read about the overly aggressive memo about delinquent school lunch accounts on my phone feed. Fox Mews reported on it and I could imagine Fox and Friends having a field day. Later I saw a CNN account of the story and this morning the NYTIMES has a story. The bottom line is that a rogue food service administrator and the school attorney got together and concocted an ill advised letter that was sent to parents whose students owed money to the school for lunches. I dare say that such incidents occurred at least once a month SOMEWHERE in the US during the 29 years I served as a school superintendent… but the boneheaded mistakes did not become national news… they were taken care of at the local level. When local mistakes by overly aggressive administrators become national news it makes everyone’s job in the public sector tougher… and takes up bandwidth in national news reporting that COULD be used to inform the public of the big picture challenges public schools face.
