Read Time <1 Minutes

Birmingham has come a long way, but we still need to make things better for everyone.  

This report by NPR, shows that Birmingham, Alabama holds the top 2 spots when comparing poverty by school districts across the U.S.  We are the ONLY southern state to make the list.  Why?  We have divided ourselves into mini-locales that work independently.  This leads to some very wealthy school districts and some very poor ones.  Is this best for the overall growth and health of the Birmingham area?
