If it's in the public school with federally mandated food program, the administrators are violating the law by excluding lunches for the week. Some of these parents won't be making their kids a lunch.

This punishment is a bad reaction to administrators being unable to manage and control sixth graders.

They call it a food fight so we have to go with that concept. In reality, it could have been used cups, ice, orange peels, or other garbage rather than food that was going to be consumed. I doubt whether significant taxpayer dollars are lost due to food fights.

It all adds up. I would rather people be held accountable for their stupidity. What then, is your proposal for punishment? You force people to alter their normal behavior and it causes an inconvenience, thus, causing people to ensure they don't perform the act which caused the inconvenience. The Pavlov's dog effect or Newton's law of action forcing an equal and opposite reaction.

Ignoring these so called "little" nuisances is the onset of bigger nuisances. The lack of discipline within the children of this society is overwhelming. Stop it now and you avoid problems in the future.

Schools are limited in what they can do for discipline. They can't beat the kids or spray them with hoses. Violating a federal law is not the answer. I suggest they do the same kind of allowed discipline they do for incidents in the classroom. That includes detention, isolation and extra work. I am not an administrator. Personally, I'd like to dope slap the kids. That would have happened when I went to parochial school.

You are uncertain if it's violating a federal law. Being federal program doesn't equate to violation if shut down for a week. I'm sure there's more to the story.

There's always more and you are right I don't know the details. You would think they considered the legality before hand. I still don't believe denying lunch to all because of a few makes sense. It just covers for ineptness in managing children. Who knows, maybe this is an ongoing problem and they tried everything else within reason.

Over $14,000 in some non-Detroit communities.
Now I see there were supposedly 175 involved in the food fight. The escalates it to a riot.
