Congratulations to the winners of our Career Month Contest! A special thanks to all students who participated. Above are some of the entries for 2014.
Month: November 2014
It’s National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week, and a new report by the National Center on Family Homelessness found that child homelessness has increased to nearly 2.5 million children in the United States. That means that one in 30 children are homeless in our country, and the number is rising in a majority of states. The number of homeless children in California alone has increased to over 500,000.
These numbers and more are featured in an article from The Guardian, and you can go directly to the report by clicking on the link or image below:
Communities Struggle to Reach Homeless Students Living In the Shadows
More than 1.1 million public school students in the United States do not have permanent homes, according to data compiled by the Department of Education.
California has the highest rate of homeless children enrolled in schools anywhere in the country. Many kids live in the shadows — in cheap motels, emergency shelters, campgrounds and even cars, like James once did.
