Ill. schools serving more poor, homeless students
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The percent of Illinois students who are homeless or living in poverty has grown in recent years.
In a release Wednesday, the Illinois State Board of Education says the spike in low-income students and those with limited English has led to increased costs for school districts.
But state funding for education has decreased by more than $861 million, or nearly 12 percent, since the budget year that started in July 2008.
