Poverty is the Majority in American Public Schools

Hi All

I found this article disturbing.  Be sure to click on the USA map and compare the 2000 and 2011 maps.

Study: Poor children are now the majority in American public schools in South, West – The Washington Post

It is sad that Oregon is one of the 17 states.

One of the best predictors of school achievement is family SES so this does not bode well.  What do you think we can do as ASPIRE Staff to help remedy the problem?

Cheers, George
