No Kid Hungry. Share Our Strength Teacher's Report


 

Share Our Strength has released its' 2012 survey of America’s teachers reporting on their experiences with hunger in the classroom.
 
About the Teachers Report
 The annual teachers report is a survey of public school teachers from around the nation about the hunger they see in their classrooms as well as their thoughts on solutions. Just a few of the findings:
-- A majority of teachers say “most” or “a lot” of their students rely on school meals as their primary source of nutrition.
-- More than 75% of teachers say that the U.S. should make childhood hunger a “top” or “high” priority
-- A majority of teachers say they have kids in their classes who regularly come to school hungry. 80% of those who see hungry kids say these children are coming to school hungry at least once a week.
-- More than 8 in 10 teachers say breakfast helps students concentrate, contributes to better academic performance and leads to healthier students with fewer headaches and fewer stomach aches.
 
Bottom Line: Teachers say kids are hungry and breakfast works.
