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.

  1. Being fired is not enough. Lawsuits against the school district should be in order. The cafeteria worker and principal should be before a judge, and sent to a jail cell.

    1. Not the School district because they would be able to use School Resources. I do believe they should sue the Individuals who did this because they not the School District made the child do this VILE thing.

  2. They should not only be fired. They should be banned for Life from having anything to do twitch children including their own but Education as well. This would include being barred from holding Office since those in office work on matters that affect Education. They should also pay for all Court Costs and Legal Fees of the family.

  3. Good grief! What is happening to people in our country? So glad the principal was fired and hope he can never get a job with any school district again. A nice big hefty fine would have been nice and then given to the girl and her family. I’m a retired teacher now 83 years old.

  4. Good thing it wasn’t my family that happened to. Those two would not be physically able to ever do that again! What the hell is wrong with these evil people? Lack of God in their lives. Too much power over children. Well, there is a special place in hell for those people. I can only imagine what they have done and not gotten caught! They should be arrested for child abuse! Disgusting!
