    The Impact of School Closures on Homeless Students in New York City

    1/19/10 - Institute for Children, Poverty & Homelessness

    Closing “poorly-performing schools” and opening small schools from which families can choose is not new educational policy for New York City; however its impact on all students has not been thoroughly evaluated.

For the rising number of students who are already housing displaced, becoming educationally displaced...
