Discover how many Arizona students live under the federal poverty line.


More than half of Arizona students — 800,212 — live in low-income households.

In 2013, a family of four with an annual income below $47,248 qualified as low income. According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, families need approximately twice the federal poverty limit to meet basic household needs. About 26 percent of Arizona children live below the federal poverty line.

As Arizona schools feel the effects of cut funding, many families are struggling to pay basic bills. How is that affecting your classrooms?
