No longer homeless, but still struggling in school

from The New York Times

For homeless children, the negative effects don't end when they move into a new home. Formerly homeless students continue to struggle in school for years, scoring as poorly on state tests as their peers with no place to live, according to a study from the Education Trust-New York released by a coalition of groups from around the state. This study emphasizes the challenges facing New York City, where 10 percent of public school students were homeless at some point during the last school year, but also makes clear that this is not just a city problem. Across the state, more than 148,000 children were homeless during the last school year, and that number is widely considered to be too low. more
