For those parents who are unable to pay these additional charges, is it not possible to address this problem the same way they handle the free lunch program?

It does sound to me like Superintendent Ann Linson has acknowledged she made an error in judgment. “It certainly wasn’t the best choice,” Linson said Tuesday. “Sometimes you learn your lesson the hard way.”
It is refreshing to know she acknowledged her error and owned it. I do not know her, however, my best guess is she won't ever make this type of error again.
