House on Mango Street

Why is the school such a stickler about who gets to eat or sit in the canteen ? She just wants to try something new. The way Esperanza asks her mom to write a note to the principal and ask to sit in the canteen, reminds me of how I asked my mom for money, in order to get cup noodles since I saw everyone else getting some. I want to find out the real reason the sister superior, is it because she seems poor ? No delight really as Esperanza ended up crying and embarrassed.
