Love me Tender

29 N.J. Students Punished After Using Pennies To Pay For Lunch: "
READINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Sometimes a penny for your thoughts isn't a good thing.
Readington Township school officials gave 29 students detention after they used pennies to pay for their $2 lunches.
Superintendent Jorden Schiff said it started out as a prank. But as the eighth-graders began to get in trouble for taking up so much time, it turned into a protest about Thursday's shortened lunch period."
Pennies are still legal tender and as long as the school accepts payments at time of purchase, they will have to put up with this sort of thing. What they did is unconstitutional and very wrong.

The suspensions were grievious miscarriages of justice.
If I were a parent there....I'd be paying with pennies too!
