This is a distressing story for anytime, but it really hurts around Christmas. These kids deserve better and our generation has been a huge disappointment. It is time to stand up and demand the Federal government to get off the land needed for a family provider to make a living. Call your representative and tell them to look at the results of the Feds owning 60% of Curry County. The Department of Interior is the number one culprit in causing this financial disaster. We should be RIOTING in the streets. When are they going to learn, what is it going to take, their children going cold and hungry?.....Rob T.
Oregon's Port Orford-Langlois school district has one of worst child poverty rates in U.S., report says
The Port Orford-Langlois School District on the southern Oregon coast has one of the highest rates of child poverty in the nation, the Census Bureau reported Thursday.
The bureau estimates that 55 percent of the 330 children who live in the district are from families earning less than the poverty threshold, which is $18,500 for a single parent with two children.
That puts Port Orford-Langlois among the 40 U.S. school districts with the highest child poverty rates, among districts with at least 100 school-aged children, the agency reported.
