Two of the parents who attended the rally said they moved to Joshua to take advantage of the school system, but now they live long enough.

“We’re screaming in our lungs, I’ve been in this area for two years,” said one of Joshua’s ISD parents. “We wanted help and felt that teachers were being insulted in the same way.”

After at least four primary school teachers resigned for school lunch. The decisions were made after district teachers were confronted with the results of a three-day survey, which found that students brought free lunches to teachers from the cafeteria where they would not eat.

Although the school board reported that the teachers had resigned voluntarily, the parents were dissatisfied and wanted an answer.

Stephanie Arredondo said, “I really hope this area will open their eyes. We wanted the supervisor removed immediately.”

They hope that their presence at the circuit assembly will send a message.

“We know it’s hard for them to make those decisions tonight, but we’re here and we want to know, we want the whole community to know these teachers, there are students, and this district deserves better,” Arredondo said.

The region said what sounded simple was actually very serious; fraud, theft and risking federal funds.

Kim Henderson, a former board member, said, “I think it’s very sad. I wish there was another way to do it, but not everyone is looking at the problem.” “The problem is that the federal government is always in our business. It was a federal rule.”

The National School Lunch Program for Texans is administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture.
