The story began in 2015 at Houston’s Christa McAuliffe Middle School, part of the Fort Bend Independent School District (ISD). Neal, then 13, queued up for her lunch like she did every day. And, when she got to the end of the line, she pulled out a $2 bill to pay for it.

In fact, the teenager’s grandmother had given Neal the money to cover the cost of the lunch. However, the teenager was stopped in her tracks by staff manning the canteen till. They wouldn’t accept the money. But why not?
