Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, the debit card system isn't completely as Izzy describes, because there's no facility to go overdrawn.

Actually, that's how I was aware that it worked, too.  The thing in the article about kids getting overdrawn was news to me, but I'm assuming that in the poorer districts they've added in that feature.  The article says that the NM district being discussed already has about 3/5 of the students on subsidized lunches.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
