We are launching the Metroleta Intersect. It is a component of Metroleta designed to start creating a special eco-system we are building. It is the first Social Tool we are building that will help support children and teachers in the very near future. When you join Metroleta, you'll help a child.
How does each JOIN, Read, Like, Share on Metroleta.com help children and teachers with school supplies, snacks, and lunches? Here's how:
Did you know that teachers use their own funds to buy supplies and snacks for their classrooms? In the 2009-2010 school year, teachers in the U.S. spent a whopping $1.33 Billion to buy school supplies—using their own money. This is separate from money allocated to schools through budgets which have been cut again and again. $500 per school year is what many teachers spend to buy school supplies and snacks for the children in their classrooms. Some U.S. teachers spend over $3,000 per year for supplies and snacks.
In 2011, about 1 in 4 children in the U.S. were "food insecure" meaning they do not always have access to enough safe and nutritionally adequate food. In some public schools, up to 80% or more of the kids are on free or subsidized lunch and breakfast programs for children living at or near the poverty level. Mid-morning snacks are highly recommended for school children for health and to improve learning, but snacks are generally not provided by the government or schools.
