STC: A study of the importance of education

admin 0

The United States Education Department said on Thursday that it is recommending that states adopt a policy to increase the amount of school-age children who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.

In the U.S., more than 30 percent of children are undernourished, according to a report released last year by the nonprofit Education Trust.

The report also found that one in five American children has a food allergy, and one in four people aged 6 to 19 are obese.

“The fact that we have a huge population of children with nutritional needs who are living in extreme poverty should be a concern for the United States,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said.

States are already starting to implement the policy, but the Obama administration has urged states to expand eligibility to include more low-income children.

There are also some problems with how states are measuring nutrition, Duncan said, adding that states need to have a more accurate picture of their populations to determine if they have the capacity to meet the needs of the country.

For example, in 2015, the federal government estimated that more than half of all children living in poverty in the U, S. have at least one food allergy.

On Thursday, the U: Education Department recommended that states that use the National School Lunch Program to provide free or subsidized lunch to eligible children receive $1,000 for each student who is not eligible.

The federal government also recommends that states provide additional cash assistance to assist families who cannot afford to provide cash assistance.

If states decide to implement such a policy, they would be required to report the amount to the federal Department of Agriculture and the U; the states would be able to use the data to determine how to best implement the food-assistance policy.

More than half the nation’s children are food insecure, according the Education Trust report, and more than one in 10 children aged 6-17 are obese, the report found.

This means that many of the families who are most at risk for malnutrition are those who are already poor.

The Food Bank for the Commonwealth, which advocates for low- and moderate-income families, is calling for increased federal funding for programs that help families afford healthy food.

Last month, the Federal Trade Commission proposed changes to the Federal Food Stamp Program, including a freeze on the amount that people are eligible to receive and a $2,000 cap on the maximum amount they can receive per year.

Families who have food insecurity are at higher risk for poor health, the agency said in a report last year.
