We all have something to learn from our kid’s teachers

We think of teachers as playing a vital role in educating our children but a new national survey shows that all of us have something important to learn from those who bear witness first hand to the health and happiness of our kids. A new national survey to be released this week (http://strength.org/blog/clay_dunn/breakfast_matters/) reveals that two-thirds of K-8 public school teachers see kids coming to school hungry because they don’t get enough to eat at home. And programs like school breakfast don’t include many of the students who are eligible.

Teachers are remarkably diverse and vigorously disagree on charter schools, unions, tenure and other issues. But 98% agree that eating breakfast affects classroom performance. It’s not only our kids that need to listen to their teachers. We all need to.
