Summary
Recently, our country has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of homeless families with school-age children as well as in independent homeless youth. This national crisis concerns policymakers, educational administrators, and practitioners alike. With contributions from experts from a variety of disciplines, Educating Homeless Children and Adolescents highlights the issues related to providing an education for homeless children and teens. Specifically, this inspiring volume provides an analysis of educational policy as it relates to this special, vulnerable population; offers practical strategies for effectively serving homeless students; and features a review of emerging homeless education programs that appear to successfully address the educational needs of homeless children and adolescents - so they, too, have an opportunity to become productive members of society. Timely and critical, Educating Homeless Children and Adolescents will stimulate provocative thinking for researchers and professionals in evaluation, policy studies, education, sociology, and political science
