Homeless Students Describe Their Experiences (Video)

| No comments

Over 1 million students in the U.S. are homeless. And while federal law states that school districts are required to provide homeless students with the support they need, many end upĀ dropping out of school. In this video, Kansas City, Kan. high school students Grace Wright and Malik Ali Cushon talk about their experiences being homeless, and what their school has done to help.

For more on how schools are helping homeless students thrive, check out our recent PBS NewsHour segment.
