Every morning my students wait in line to get breakfast. Every other morning breakfast is brought out late and a few students try to leave my first period to get breakfast. A few times a week, I manage to have enough bananas, almonds, and raisins ready to keep kids on task. Rarely do the kids eat a healthy meal. Never do I feel good about the situation.
In the Bronx, and in many schools across the country, bureaucratic breakfast includes Corn Flakes, milk, a smaller sized juice, and a piece of string cheese.
