Baltimore, Md.--2/28/18-- Chad Kramer, principal of Patterson Park Public Charter School, stops traffic for his students to cross the street after dismissal. Kramer feels that the poverty rates are undercounted for many of his students who are from immigrant families. The poverty rate used to be determined by family income reported in free and reduced meals applications. Now it's based on participation in federal aid programs, which immigrant families are less likely to apply or qualify for. Kenneth K. Lam/The Baltimore Sun md-poverty-undercount Lam KKL_7353
