Students get checks for 15-cent refunds from NYC school system

ABC 7 News

When the letter from the Department of Education came, Roseann did not know what to think.

The Department of Education used first class postage to tell Roseann that she overpaid for he son’s lunch three years ago – by 15 cents, and that she was eligible for a refund.

Many people in Queens got the letters this week – one person that Eyewitness News talked to got a letter saying she was due for a five cent refund.

In a statement, the Department of Education said,

“The DOE is following through on its commitment to provide refunds for all families that made pre-payments for school lunch or had existing balances.”

Donna Olivia is owed $2.50.

“I was kinda shocked,” she said.

Roseann contacted the DOE to tell them they did not need to send a check for fifteen cents, and she says they sent her an email back that said, ‘if you wave (sic) your right to the refund, no action is required by you.’

    Obviously not a jew.

    This only shows a more bureaucratic and automated robotic system of government with no more common sense. It only gets worse when answers come from keystrokes and search engines rather than old fashioned way…thinking. Back to the topic….just a few decades ago the children were sent to school with responsible parents buying & bagging the lunch they brought with love and appreciation in return….often walking miles to get 3 r’s. Giving too much leaves no initiative to the recipient.
