Half of Alabama public school students now in poverty
The percentage of Alabama public school students living in poverty has crossed the 50 percent mark for the first time, according to the state education officials.
The Alabama State Department of Education released more than 1,200 "report cards" Thursday rating the state's 1,529 public schools. The reports show that 50.7 percent of Alabama's students receive free or reduced-price meals at school, an indicator of poverty.

Forget I asked that I already know the answer.
