While you pat yourselves on the back over the shutdown Conservatives

Here's something for you to keep your policy abuse chubby for at least another four hours:

A majority of students in public schools throughout the American South and West are low-income for the first time in at least four decades, according to a new study that details a demographic shift with broad implications for the country.

The analysis by the Southern Education Foundation, the nation’s oldest education philanthropy, is based on the number of students from preschool through 12th grade who were eligible for the federal free and reduced-price meals program in the 2010-11 school year.

"Schools, who needs 'em, there's poor kids there unable to pull themselves up by their Goodwill-Shoe purchased bootstraps."
