Summary

One of the most enigmatic issues of contemporary homelessness is that of schooling. The phenomenon of homeless families with school-age children, as well as a growing population of independent school-age youths, has served to focus homelessness as an issue of concern for policy makers, educational administrators and practitioners.The book provides an analysis of educational policy as it relates to this special population, offers practical strategies for effectively serving homeless children, and features a review of emerging homeless education programmes that appear to be successfully addressing the educational needs of homeless children and adolescents.
