About 1 in 2 school-age children in LISD lived in poverty in 2010, making it among the poorest districts in the state and nation, according to recent census estimates.

The estimates show that Laredo Independent School District’s child poverty rate was fourth among state and 15th among American school districts that were home to more than 10,000 people.
The district definitely has its back to the wall, but that doesn't mean that there's no solution to educating (graduating) more students.
