Study: Nearly half of students in low-income homes

LANSING (WKZO) -- Nearly half of all public school children in Michigan are in low-income homes.

The numbers are from a new study by the Southern Education Foundation, and show the percentage of students living near the poverty line in urban districts is at 64-percent.  The foundation used the federal free and reduced lunch program numbers for the determination.

Mississippi has the highest percentage of students in poor homes at 71-percent.
