While this has been published before, it is so startling that I thought it deserved a post all by itself.

As stated before, a Friend of McHenry County Blog put this data together from an official state education spreadsheet.

2016 Statistics on Low Income by School District — 5 Comments

  1. What is it you find startling? Did you think the tax cuts would make everyone rich? Did you think the wealthy corporations would give big raises to employees?

  2. The only reason socialism hasn’t worked, is you haven’t given dentbla and some high school sophomores, a chance at implementing it.

  3. I have to think that the 99.2% number in Harvard is either a mistake, or else the Harvard schools are really slack in their verification process.

    Students from low income families get fee waivers and free/reduced cost meals.

    Undocumented students can also participate in these programs, and without an SSN, there is no reliable way to verify income.
