MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota - As teachers head back into the classroom for another challenging school year, the outlook is especially difficult for the many schools that lack adequate funding. According to The Education Trust, students in the highest poverty districts receive approximately 7% (or $1,000) less in state and local funding per student than students educated in the wealthiest districts. Yoplait and Box Tops are on a mission to try to help close that gap so that kids can reach their fullest potential this school year and beyond.
