Debbie Solsman was fired from an elementary school after 15 years of employment for giving kids in need free lunches.
Wilmington, Ohio is home to the Denver Place elementary school and Debbie Solsman had been a cafeteria worker there for over 15 years. Debbie was fired 2 months ago after she was caught breaking school policies repeatedly in order to starve hungry students. At Denver Place students are allowed up to 3 free lunches if they do not have the money, but once they hit the third strike, they are no longer able to receive a traditional lunch entree. Instead, they are given a cheese sandwich. Two pieces of bread, with a slice of cheese in the middle. Filling…
Debbie Solsman felt for these children, as anyone with a heart would, and began paying for the kids food herself, and when she didn’t have the money on hand she would write out an IOU and pay for the meals out of her paycheck at the end of the week. No harm, no foul right?
Apparently the school district did not see it that way, and did not appreciate Debbie’s efforts to help the hungry children. Even though Debbie Solsman admits that she broke the schools policies, but claims she paid for all of the food that she gave out, the school district still decided to terminate her. Since news of Debbie’s termination has begun to spread like wild fire across the internet parents have begun to express their displeasure with the way the situation has played out.
Do you think Debbie should have been fired for her actions?
