Study: Majority of Students in Public Schools in South & West Are Low Income
There's a new report out that finds the majority of kids in school right now are low income.
A graphic from the Southern Education Foundation shows the country back in 2001 and then again in 2011.
This analysis is based on the number of students from preschool through 12th grade that are eligible for free or reduced lunch.
Virginia has a decent rating compared to other states - at 36.7 %.
The Washington Post reports 17 states have high numbers of low income kids, and 13 of those are in the South.
