An elementary school principal in Colorado was dismissed after complaining about foodservice staff hand-stamping students whose lunch accounts were depleted, reports the Boulder Daily Camera. The principal, Noelle Roni of Peak to Peak Charter School, had asked the foodservice manager to halt the practice, which had been in place for years. That demand apparently prompted the manager to resign (confusion over a new POS system had resulted in several students qualifying for free/reduced price meals also being stamped).

Roni was subsequently dismissed following a disciplinary letter being placed in her file for her "unprofessional conduct" in handling the matter, though the school hasn't given a reason for the dismissal except to say it wasn't in retaliation.
