Principal stopped school’s shaming free lunch kids with hand stamps, says it got her fired [View all]

A former principal at a charter elementary school in Colorado said that she was fired last year after she tried to force school officials to stop marking the hands of children who could not afford to buy lunch for full price in the cafeteria.

In an email sent to parents last November, Peak to Peak Charter School insisted that former principal Noelle Roni’s firing was not a form of retaliation after she claimed she had complained about a hostile work environment.

At the time, Roni had said that she refused to sign a buyout offer because “it would have put me in a position of not being able to explain myself to the community I love.”

“It would also prevent me from trying to undo the damage that continues to be waged on my reputation and character by the ongoing speculation,” she noted. “I believe that I was retaliated against for standing up for children’s rights and against activities that stigmatized children.”
