LAFAYETTE, Colo. – An elementary school principal says she was fired for protecting children from humiliation.

Noelle Roni says she fought against a policy requiring kids to get their hands stamped if they don’t have enough money in their lunch account. She was fired from Peak to Peak Charter School in Lafayette in the fall.

“The kids are humiliated. They’re branded. It’s disrespectful. Where’s the human compassion? And these are little children,” she said.

Roni was principal for nine years before being fired. She calls it a wrongful termination, and wants her job back.

I don’t even understand what the fucking point of having the kids get stamps was, even to this oblivious horrible human.

APPARENTLY I MISREAD THIS but why did the school even have the stamp thing? Like what do they think they’re accomplishing with it?

What the hell do the stamps accomplish except humiliation?

When I was in elementary school, we got a 6 digit number for our library card and lunch account. When it was entered in the computer and there wasn’t enough money to buy lunch, you’d get a notice home. Why can’t it be as simple as that?

Info about your lunch account is no one’s business except your parent’s, and the lunch aides who carry out the transactions.

Earlier this year Zora Ball was your average 1st grader until she decided to create and develop a mobile video game app, making her the youngest person to ever do so. At just 7-years old Zora managed to learn a programming language called “Bootstrap” that is normally used to teach kids ages 12 through 16 the different concepts of Algebra by using video games. Her teachers and family were astonished by her accomplishment. 

She was invited to an expo at the University of Penn where she was put on the spot and asked to reconfigure the app in front of everyone to prove that it was her that developed the mobile app in the first place and not her older brother who is a scholar student. Zora successfully did so and got rid of any doubt that anyone had. 
Zora Ball is now referred to a young prodigy with an extremely bright future in technology and computer science. Young Zora is an example of Black Excellence not having an age requirement.

I wanna grow up and be an illustrator and create pictures like these for books. It takes me back to when I was a child, and I’d look at the pictures and imagine a whole world from just one page.
