New Jersey’s Whole Child Snapshot: Do our NJ Students Measure Up?

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

To be prepared for well-paying jobs and lifelong learning, New Jersey’s children need personalized support, safe environments, good health, and challenging learning opportunities. The following data highlight how well the comprehensive needs of New Jersey’s children are being met and show how the state compares with all other states. The action steps present initial ideas for how New Jersey citizens can make targeted and innovative improvements that equip the state’s students with the knowledge and skills they need to become productive, tax-paying adults who help New Jersey create a robust economy.

As a school nutrition professional, providing nutritious meals for students through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs (NSLP and SBP) is of the upmost importance. But when the last bell of the school year rings, many of the children who rely on these programs throughout the year are left at serious risk of going hungry.
