Cafeteria Monitor And A School Principal Finally Receive Some Justice After Video Shows They Forced A 9-Year-Old To Eat Out Of The Trash Can

A Northeast Ohio family says it is painful to watch a video, just released, showing a nine-year-old girl being forced to eat food out of a school cafeteria trash can.

The Lorain City School District released the heavily-blurred video Wednesday afternoon.

A cafeteria monitor and the school’s principal ended up being fired over the incident.

According to the little girl’s attorney, watching the video brought back all the feelings of humiliation and embarrassment she felt right after the incident, which will eventually be heard in federal court.

“What we see is a student finish with her lunch… again, a student finish with her lunch and she goes to throw the lunch away like hundreds and thousands of students across the country do every day,” said Jared Klebanow, one of the attorneys for the girl’s family.

The surveillance video was taken last November from the cafeteria of Palm Elementary School. The school district blurred students’ faces before releasing the footage.

The total video was 34-minutes long, but only a few moments are relevant to the incident.

The cafeteria monitor and the principal finally received some justice!

During their investigation, Lorain City School officials say the student threw away a packaged food item, and the employee removed it, wiped it off, gave it back to the girl, who opened it and ate it.

They condemned the actions, eventually firing the cafeteria monitor and the principal who they say knew about the incident but never reported it.

“It certainly solidifies the student’s story and you know, unfortunately, in our world and society today, had that video not been there, it might have just been a child’s word against a teacher, an administrator, which is a tough spot to be in,” Klebanow said.

The school district said they would have no further comment about the incident beyond their past statements.

The family’s attorneys say they have been asking for the video, but never got a chance to review it until now. He said they did not get it directly from the school district.

The family news to sue them both personally. NOT sue the district, although that is warranted too, but those individuals personally. That way the cost of defense comes out of THEIR pockets. Make them pay for this. Civil suit is in order

No, the district needs to be sued because they hired the principal and cafateria monitor. They should also have criminal charges for health code violations and child endangerment. Packaged or not, people do not eat food from trashcans in a normally functioning society.

Overblown. Packaged item wiped off after it had been thrown into a fresh garbage can. Not optimal but it should not be described as eating out of a garbage can which creates a very different picture.

So, would you eat something that came out of a garbage can? I wouldn’t. I don’t subscribe to the ten-second rule.

No one asked if the child paid for the food. If [s]he did, then be wasteful, or next time find something better.Bring your lunch from HOME. Make what you like! BUT, if it was my tax money who is supporting this child [so not to go hungry] eat it. Be happy that your stomach isn’t empty/growling.
