Hungry Kids are Almost Unteachable

Try and learn a new or difficult concept on an empty stomach. It’s virtually impossible to be anywhere near your best when you’re hungry:

 

An increasing number of pupils in Scotland are going to school hungry and in some cases are stealing food from classmates, according to teachers.

Teaching union the EIS carried out a survey as part of its work on tackling the impact of poverty in schools.

About half (51%) of those questioned reported a rise in pupils coming to school without any food.

The survey also found an increase in those taking free school meals and attending breakfast clubs.
