More Illinois Schools Seeing More Low-Income Kids

(Springfield, IL)  —  More Illinois schools are serving more low-income kids than ever before.  A new report from the education advocates at Advance Illinois say the number of schools with a majority of low-income kids jumped from 13% to 43% over the past ten years.  Advance Illinois released the report yesterday as lawmakers are still slowly slogging though discussions about how to change the way the state pays for schools.
