Back to school: Breaking down barriers to homeless kids' education
Justice for Breakfast discussion series
October 11, 2011 ~ 8:15 am
School is a place of continuity, support, and opportunity for many students, particularly those who lack a stable home. Homelessness, at the same time, presents a profound barrier to educational attainment and success. Over the past year, the Public Justice Center has begun to break down this barrier in Baltimore City, partnering with City Schools and a coalition of service providers, advocates, families, and youth to develop strategies by which to better identify and serve homeless students. Moving forward, we will implement these strategies and explore additional ways to help young people overcome instability in their own lives and achieve their academic dreams.
Join us for a discussion around homelessness and mobility among Baltimore's student population. Share your thoughts on how to build on our progress to date and expand the resources available to homeless and highly mobile children and youth, both in the city and throughout the state.
