AT A GLANCE: Low income, lower scores

Oklahoma Watch analyzed 2012 state reading-test scores and found that elementary schools with higher percentages of low-income students — those on free or reduced-price lunch — had higher shares of third-graders scoring below proficient. Here's a look at how those students fared:

Schools with 75 to 100 percent of students who are low-income: 38 percent scored below proficient.

Schools with 50 to 74.9 percent of students who are low-income: 26 percent scored below proficient.

Schools with 25 to 49.9 percent of students who are low-income: 19 percent scored below proficient.

Schools with 0 to 24.9 percent of students who are low-income: 12 percent scored below proficient.
