Student homelessness and how schools are working to combat the problem
from Education World
For students who don't have a bed to call their own, staying focused in class and completing homework assignments can be incredibly difficult. Homelessness is affecting a growing number of children, having doubled in the last decade to 1.3 million, according to the National Center for Homeless Education. This doesn't mean that all students who are homeless are living on the street or in homeless shelters. Many could have parents that were evicted from their homes and are bouncing in-between short stays with family and friends. Regardless, the instability can be incredibly jarring for students.
