The superintendent of an Ohio school district says a cafeteria worker was wrong to remove a lunch tray from a middle school student after he'd sat down to eat over a $6 lunch debt.

Wellington Exempted Village School District Superintendent Ed Weber said a video confirmed what happened to the eighth-grader Wednesday.

Weber says he met with the boy Thursday and apologized, telling him ``it's not the way we do things.''

He says students are allowed to carry a $20 lunch charge.

The worker was taken off the job and could face discipline once an investigation is completed.
