School Breakfast Participation
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Students who do not eat breakfast are more likely to score lower on standardized tests, experience more disciplinary problems, have higher absentee rates, have more tardy days, receive lower math grades, and score lower on psychological adjustment tests.1 However, nationwide, during the 2006-2007 school year, the School Breakfast Program served less than half of the low-income students eligible for free or reduced-price meals. In an attempt to serve more students, schools are implementing alternative methods of serving breakfast rather than relying on the traditional service method.
