2013 Maine school report card rankings and poverty

The state Department of Education's A-F grading system for schools, which was unveiled Wednesday, shows a strong correlation between low or failing grades and the percentage of students at a school receiving free or reduced-price lunch, an indicator of poverty. Each dot shows the average school grade ratings for each district (roll over the dots to see district names).
