What it takes to feed 200 kids, twice a day (better hope it's not a taco day)
Tomorrow, on State of Opportunity, we’re airing a new documentary, called The Big Test.
To report the documentary, I spent six weeks in the fall following a group of third grade students at Congress Elementary in Grand Rapids. Congress has low test scores, and we wanted to know what you might miss if you only focus on those scores.
In my six weeks at Congress, I gathered far more audio than we'll ever be able to air. So today, as a preview to tomorrow's documentary, we bring you a sort of deleted scene.
It’s a glimpse into one of the most overlooked aspects of any school’s operations: The lunch room.
Be sure to tune in to the full documentary, The Big Test, tomorrow at 3 p.m. and 10 p.m.
