"Before the misunderstanding spreads too far, it is important to point out what the recent New Hampshire Supreme Court decision actually said about the constitutionality of the voucher tax credit law."

Thanks to a new grant from the School Superintendents Association, New Hampshire schools have a unique opportunity to expand their breakfast programs. The AASA is currently accepting applications for awards up to $10,000.

Advocates commend NH Supreme Court decision for recognizing that kids should be treated as kids in the juvenile justice system. New Hampshire Supreme Court holds on August 29, 2014, that U.S. Miller v.

NH Kids Count, along with NH School Breakfast Challenge partners, recognized 11 top-achieving schools for raising student participation in their school breakfast programs.

Research shows that children who eat breakfast have better concentration, higher test scores and increased attendance. Read below to see which schools increased school breakfast participation and are taking active steps to make sure every child starts their day with a full stomach.
