Description

A strong relationship exists between homelessness and academic achievement in America. More than one third of the nation’s unaccompanied youth reside in California. In fact, during the 2016-2017 school year, about 202,500 K-12 students experienced homelessness in California. This Special Topic report by the California Homeless Youth Project reports on how school discipline is one of the barriers to academic achievement that students who experience homelessness find themselves facing. The study identifies solutions to these barriers. 32 pages.
