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.
