Hi Asher

New York State Technical and Education Assistance Center for Homeless Students (NYS-TEACHS), a project of Advocates for Children of New York (AFC), posted new data showing the number of students in New York City and New York State schools identified as homeless during the 2017-2018 school year.

The data come from the New York State Education Department’s Student Information Repository System (SIRS) and show that during the 2017-2018 school year:

152,839 students were identified as homeless by New York State school districts and charter schools, an increase of 4,624 students from the 2016-2017 school year.
114,659 students were identified as homeless by New York City school districts and charter schools, an increase of 3,097 students from the 2016-2017 school year.
More than one in ten students in New York City schools was identified as homeless.
The number of New York City students identified as homeless increased by 66% since the 2010-2011 school year.
“The number of students who are homeless in New York City would fill Yankee Stadium twice,” said Kim Sweet, AFC’s Executive Director. “While the City works to address the overwhelming problem of homelessness, it must take bold action to ensure that students who are homeless get an excellent education and do not get stuck in a cycle of poverty.”

What sad news!

How is it in other North American Cities? What about in Europe?
