Creating a Community of Learning for Homeless Children.
Nunez, Ralph da Costa; Collignon, Kate
Educational Leadership, v55 n2 p56-60 Oct 1997
Over 750,000 U.S. school-age children are homeless. Schools can eliminate attendance and environmental barriers sabotaging these children's education by becoming communities of learning that provide specialized education for children, contextualized education for parents, and linkages to needed services. The Bronx's Brownstone School, Chicago's Recovering the Gifted Child Academy, and Salem, Oregon's Homeless Children and Families Program are stellar examples. (10 references) (MLH)
