Free Student Breakfasts: Surest Way to Raise Performance
Chmelynski, Carol
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v72 n8 p59-61 Apr 2007
According to James Weill, president of the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), breakfast is not the solution to the problems in America's schools, but it is the fastest, easiest, cheapest way of boosting school performance. According to FRAC, the federal breakfast program run by the Agricultural Department reached a record 7.7 million low-income children in the 2005-2006 school year, but still, only 40% of the children who need school breakfast receive it. This article reports on the efforts undertaken by various states to increase student participation in breakfast programs, and on the success they have seen as a result.
