This is good news! As we''ve documented in our ""Just Kids"" report, many children each year are referred to the juvenile justice system after they''ve acted out in class or gotten into a fight at school behavioral issues that can be rooted in unmet economic and social needs. Research also suggests children who are properly nourished are able to pay attention for longer, learn more, and are ultimately more likely to complete their educations, successfully ensuring they avoid the school-to-prison pipeline.
