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 says 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. Schiff said the students were punished for holding up their peers and disrespecting lunch aides. Schiff said some parents think a two-day detention went too far and others think it wasn't enough.
