Teachers could use help cleaning up classrooms

In regard to breakfasts in school, please let us dismiss the absurd idea that the Buffalo school teachers want their pupils to go hungry. The problem is that the teachers have little or no help in distributing, supervising, or cleaning up from the classroom breakfasts.

Given that the current school budgets include plenty of money for advice by outside experts, but little money for classroom aides, the solution to the problem could be volunteer help. Organized parent groups, churches, synagogues, service groups like Rotary or the Shriners surely could organize five volunteers per classroom, each volunteer to come in for two hours, one day per week, to help with the tasks involved in making sure all the children start the day with a healthy meal.
