Homelessness in the U.S.: A Historical Analysis
Murphy, Joseph; Tobin, Kerri
American Educational History Journal, v41 n2 p267-284 2014
In this article, the authors examine homelessness across time and examine, in an introductory way, homelessness today. The authors start by examining important themes that ribbon homelessness in America over the last 300 years. Next, they provide a period analysis of homelessness from the birth of the country through the late 1970s. In the last section, they discuss the new homelessness which began around 1980, homelessness that is dramatically impacting education for the first time.
