Student Does Something Incredible For Another In Need - Gets In Trouble For It

Apparently, sharing is a no-no in at least one California district. A student found that out the hard way when he tried to offer his friend a chicken burrito from his lunch, rather than throw it in the garbage. The school disciplined the generous student because they prefer food be thrown away in the garbage rather than shared.

Kyle Bradford, at 13-years-old, knows that having compassion and morals are a good thing. It’s something his mother, Sandy Bradford, taught him. So when Kyle didn’t want his chicken burrito, and his friend was without a proper lunch, Kyle offered it to his friend.

According to the school, that’s not the way things should happen.

"We have a policy that prohibits students from exchanging meals," explains Tom Barnett, the Superintendent of the Trinity Alps Unified School District in California. "Of course if students are concerned about other students not having enough to eat we would definitely want to consider that, but because of safety and liability we cannot allow students to actually exchange meals."

Kyle’s friend didn’t have lunch that day, and the school provided him with the standard substitution: a cheese sandwich. For a growing teen, this isn’t exactly the lunch of champions. Ms. Bradford believes her son did the right thing.

"By all means the school can teach them math and the arithmetic and physical education, but when it comes to morals and manners and compassion, I believe it needs to start at home with the parent," she explained.

Kyle doesn’t think much of school policy. He says he will ‘definitely share his lunch again’ if a friend needs it.
