The Hunger Crisis in Our Schools Is Nothing to Joke About


When Betsy Devos jokes about cutting school lunch programs, I think back to the day 6 years ago when my colleague, Dr Jane Edward, joined me in visiting a school in the Bronx which had a large number of African students. After showing us some of the great programs they were doing with this new, largely Muslim population, the principal and parent coordinator took us into the office closed the door and said:
 
"Now we're going to tell you what really goes on around here. On Friday, many of our students start crying because they are not sure how much they are going to eat over the weekend. School is the only place where they can count on being fed"
 
It will be a cold day in hell before I forgive Betsy Devos for making light of the hunger crisis facing many our public school families. She should not be given any position of authority regarding education, schools and children
