Where nearly half of pupils are homeless, school aims to be teacher, therapist, even Santa
from The New York Times
There are supposed to be 27 children in Harold Boyd IV's second-grade classroom, but how many of them will be there on a given day is anyone's guess. Since school began in September, five new students have arrived and eight children have left. Two transferred out in November. One who started in January was gone in April. A boy showed up for a single day in March, and then never came back. Even now, in the twilight of the school year, new students are still arriving, one as recently as mid-May.
