Reporters from the Buffalo News investigate how poverty level affect student test scores in nine local elementary schools. What they found was that, in most cases, schools with children from lower ecomonic backgrounds often faired better than higher income students in suburban schools. "We considered these to be the schools doing the best job educating students--rather than the schools that happened to have students from the best economic backgrounds." This investigation also looks into how financial contributions from each school district affected student academic success.
