For homeless students, school bus ride offers sense of stability

from KPLU-FM

Federal law requires school districts to educate homeless students. The late Speaker of the House Tom Foley sponsored the legislation that requires all districts to have a homeless liaison. Under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987, school districts must also offer transportation to a child's school of origin. The law provides some stability to young lives fluttering on the edge. And in Washington state, the number of those students is growing, from 18,670 in the 2007-2008 school year to 27,390 last year. more
