Bringing It Home: Understanding the Lives of Homeless Youth
Tierney, William G.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v28 n6 p757-759 2015
In this commentary, the author reflects on a special issue that explores how educational institutions serve homeless and highly mobile students as well as their families. The number of homeless youth continues to rise, leading the author to question why structural constraints have not been removed. In addition to reflecting on the articles, he points toward additional research areas that warrant exploration.
