Can a school penalize a student for not paying a fee? Posted on February 05, 2011

My son is in 7th grade and his school is having skating in gym class. Some of the students do not pay this fee and are required to run the duration of class. Is this legal? It seems to be a strong arm tactic to force the parents to pay more for a required class and the child(ren) are being singled out for not receiving this payment. I am offered the option of donating money to needy children to help cover the cost of their rental. It just doesn't sit well with me.
