Boston Globe: Boston to expand breakfast in classroom program
The Boston Public Schools this year plan to triple the number of schools that serve free breakfast in the classroom in hopes of getting more kids to start the day on a full stomach.
Teachers will hand out french toast sticks, muffins, and other items after the morning bell rings. Students can munch away as they settle into their seats or even as their teacher introduces a new lesson or goes over material from the previous day.
The goal is to have 50 schools participate, up from 17 last year. The first day of classes in Boston is Thursday.
