Buckner, John C.; Bassuk, Ellen L.; Weinreb, Linda F.
Journal of School Psychology, v39 n1 p45-69 Jan-Feb 2001
Studies sheltered homeless and low-income housed families to examine predictors of academic achievement, focusing on housing status, mobility, and race/ethnicity. Results reveal that housing status was not associated with academic achievement. Discusses how homeless and housed children had comparable rates of absenteeism and other school-related problems, which may explain why they were similar in terms of achievement.
