“The teachers know better than to give a test on Monday morning. That’s a profound and disturbing observation, because it talks about performance, it talks about school, it talks about education, and we all know that education is the key to getting out of poverty. If you’re hobbled by hunger, it won’t work.” (Speaking about the backpack program)
“I am always treated with respect and kindness”
“The students have expressed gratitude – there are sometimes conflicts over food at their homes and they’ve expressed the power of stress reduction of not fighting with parents or guardians when they want more food than is available.”
