EDUCATING & ASSISTING HOMELESS STUDENTS
Homeless children face numerous hardships in their personal lives that sometimes result in significant academic, health, developmental, psychological and emotional problems in school.

This new ECS Web Issue Site shares state policies and practices, federal legislation, research and other places to get information on educating homeless students.
