School Breakfast Score Card 1991-1992. (Second Edition.)
Tingling-Clemmons, Michele A.; Kittlaus, Ann K.
The School Breakfast Program supplies federal funds to schools and residential child care institutions that provide breakfasts to children. This status report compares the performance of each state to the performance of other states and of the nation as a whole in school breakfast participation. The first section examines overall outcomes, taking a brief look at school breakfast participation by school and low-income student participation in each state. Recent accomplishments are described in the second section, which measures progress made between 1991 and 1992 in expanding breakfast programs in schools and in serving low-income students. Section 3 focuses on state efforts by considering states' use of four tools for program expansion: state mandates, state funding, federal start-up funds, and direct certification. The fourth section focuses on evaluation, rating the states' performances in the preceding three sections. Ten tables and a list of related publications are included. (MM)
