Sms truancy alert expanded to 400 schools
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — School lunches have become more expensive and have been replaced with more junk food this school year, according to a new report.
The report, released Monday by the advocacy group Better Schools America, said at least 60 million school lunches — roughly half of the nation’s바카라 — are being served less nutritious fare, including fruit and cereal with added sugars and unhealthy meat and fish.
The report, by the group’s policy and campaign arm Better Schools America, also found that a growing number of American kids are skipping lunch and eating junk food at school in anticipation of school starting in the next few weeks.
Among that group of kids are students who attend New York City public schools, which has seen more students skip lunch, the report found. The dropout rate — a measure of how often students have skipped a meal — has been rising sharply in urban areas like New York City.
According to the report, in Ne바카라w York City there are about 1,200 school lunch programs and there are about 1,400 empty seats on the playground, compared to more than 3,000 empty seats in suburban districts across the nation.
“The sky is the limit, and I am concerned about what might happen next, because we could see a huge dropout effect and we’ll see students not going to school that much,” said Eric Johnson, founder and executive director of Better Schools America.
More schools are expect더킹카지노ed to start their lunch programs next school year. The report found that about 20% of public schools will start their lunch programs to keep up with rising costs. Of those, 31% will serve only two meals. Those with two meals or less may do the most at first, the report said.
Meanwhile, New York State will end its long-standing practice of paying students for lunch by charging them a $10 per meal service fee that is now $1.10, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo says public school lunches are critical for raising kids’ reading and writing abilities.
The state will stop paying for the service this school year, ending five years of use of the payment, said Chris Bresnahan, director of the education law program at the New York Civil Liberties Union.
The cost to the state of paying students is expected to rise to about $14.15 per child with the fee. The money will come from reduced school service money given by the federal government and the state’s current revenue.
