55% of C'ville students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Ok, so does that say something here. If 55% make such low wages, then LOWER THE HOUSING PRICES. If 55% can't afford regular price lunches for their children, how the hell do you expect them to afford housing. We can't without struggling, that's how we do it. Something is seriously wrong with this picture. We don't all have those high paying jobs but yet housing prices and rent in C'ville is off the graph!
