School Prohibits Kids with Lunch Debt from Attending Prom, Field Trips

Governor Phil Murphy is calling out a South Jersey school district for punishing students who owe lunch money. The Cherry Hill Public School Board has recently voted to restrict students who have at least 75 dollars' worth of lunch debt are not allowed to attend the prom, participate in extracurricular activities or to buy a yearbook. The governor said yesterday that no child should be shamed, punished, or banned from school activities over lunch money. He says he's committed to working with the State Legislature to protect students from such punishment.
