Educating Homeless Children and Youth: A Policy Analysis.
Bowen, Jeffrey M.; And Others
Policies and problems of education for the homeless are discussed. The analysis is organized in four main sections. The first describes trends, dimensions, and difficulties of homelessness among children and youth. This section is based on various reports, especially those required by federal legislation. The second section reports and interprets results of a national survey of state policies and plans that stem from federal obligations established under the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act of 1987. The third section presents a New York State case study; a history of issues and problems relating to public education of the homeless, and legislative and regulatory solutions to those problems. The fourth section offers recommendations for policy development and study. Materials related to the national survey, including the cover letter and the status of states' responses to the survey, are appended. Approximately 30 references are cited. (RH)
