There's plenty of terrible news rolling out of West Virginia these days, so it's good to highlight some good news. One thing WV does right is feed kids in its school system, thanks largely to my friend Rick Goff, of the Office of Child Nutrition and general rock star and his staff.
According to WV News Service,
A new survey has found the state has the highest percentage of qualifying students eating school breakfast in the nation...
Statistics show that kids who eat breakfast in school have better attendance, better test scores and fewer discipline problems. As one school official put it, students can't be hungry to learn if they're just plain hungry.West Virginia has truly been a leader in this field. Let's hope that this continues to be the case.
