    Nice post. Whoever posting for the school board has no idea about social media.

    That story was unbelievable. It’s rare that you can find so many ways to go wrong, but that school excelled. The social media silliness was the least of their problems.

    That is an very sad commentary on the system and their lack of knowledge regarding publicity and how SM really works. Taking food away from a hungry child makes no sense. If there is a payment issue they should work with the parents not take it out on the kids. Just my thoughts. :)

    Hi Susan, As the district spokesperson foolishly insists on maintaining their policy it is clear they want to continue business as usual despite the national outcry. This mindset is also reflected on their Facebook page where there are now over 6,700 negative comments under their apology yet Salt Lake City School District has not responded with a general post to the public. To add oil to the flame, I learned all school lunches are Federally funded and when a student doesn’t qualify for free lunch (as these students did not) the school only makes 30 cents per lunch! They chose to humiliate 40 students over $12.00.

    Unbelievable and a good example of what can happen when values are absent.
