How can the school officials in Spartanburg say they noticed nothing wrong when a 7 yr old weighed 32 pounds? This is unbelievable and criminal. School officials have a responsibility to report obvious abuse or neglect. How much more obvious could it have been? Did anyone ever ask the kids, "do you get enough to eat at home?" These are educators! It is not rocket science. We have horrible SAT scores but can't we even look at kids when we spend the entire day with them. The principal, laughably, said the children were "happy go-lucky" at school. Sure they were...they had lunch there! The so-called parents should have their hands tied with food just out of arm's reach for a very long time. Embarassing for our state? This story was on CNN.......relatives called me from other states to ask "is that place near you?" Where is social services in this mess? How could children have even been placed with such monsters in the first place? Was there no follow up after the placement? Govenor Sanford, county board of supervisors, school board: listen up---every teacher,teacher's aide, principal, bus driver, cafeteria worker, janitor who saw these kids on a daily basis should be called to task for their total insensitivity.......and place their lunches just out of reach for a few days.......or longer.

I totally agree w/ you. To add one thought..........The money the USA is spending on the to deny one child the security of one meal, or one bath, or one persons pay to keep up with the system to protect the children in OUR country.
