Banning ‘lunch shaming’ | Opinion |

House Bill 3454, which the Oregon House approved Thursday, is one of those pieces of legislation that’s easy to love and hate at the same time: love because in a political climate where the poor and disenfranchised have a limited voice, HB 3454 defends such people. Hate because it shouldn’t take a state law for school personnel to treat students with basic human respect.

HB 3454 bans in schools what’s become known as “lunch shaming” — publicly identifying and stigmatizing students whose accounts are out of balance.
