The city of Flint has more than twice the percentage of people living in poverty as the state average. And Flint Community Schools has been running a deficit since 2010-11.

But poor cities such as Flint don’t necessarily translate into poorly funded school districts. Flint schools isn’t losing money because of a revenue problem.
