EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.

Friday, January 16, 2015

According to a new report by the Southern Educational Foundation, low income students are now a majority of the students attending the nation’s public schools.  51% of the students across the nation’s public schools were low income in 2013.  In North Carolina, 53% of the students were low income in the same year. 

An article in The Washington Post says, this is “a statistic that has profound implications for the nation.”


These are the sources EdNC checks every day: The New York Times, The 74, Education Week, The NC Tribune, The Insider, The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer, WUNC, WFAE, Brookings, Education Commission of the States, and DPI’s News. A cross section of diverse sources are checked weekly and monthly. If you have an article you think needs to be included, email [email protected].
