A 17-year-old Idaho student reportedly hired someone to overwhelm his school districts computer system with a Distributed Denial of Service attack. A spokesperson for the school district told KTVB that the DDoS attack restricted many schools access to the internet but did not go after any student's data. The general havoc caused by the interruption of service at schools caused many students to lose their work while taking the Idaho Standard Achievement tests. You might think that getting to take a break from standardized testing would be cause to celebrate but that is not the case. Some kids have had to re-take the test more than once during the week and a half that the DDoS attacks took place. The student responsible has been suspended and recommended for expulsion. The teen will most likely serve up to 180 days in a juvenile detention center for the state felony charge that this offense carries and may be facing federal felony charges as well.

Kids in Roosevelt High School on Chicago's Northwest Side have been receiving burnt pizza, rotten fruit and generally unhealthy, unappetizing school lunches. Most people don't get excited about school lunch but this takes it a little too far and the kids at this school decided to do something about it. They've created something called The School Lunch Project: Culinary Denial where they share information about the school's lunch provider Aramark as well as pictures of unsatisfactory lunches like this one:



Ultimately, their demands are for better alternatives to the lunch they are offered. Currently, Aramark benefits by being the only food provider in school and lowering their bottom line as much as possible. If kids don't eat, the company might have to change their menu or risk losing profits.
