Webinar on the State of Homeless Students in America

WEBINAR Hidden in Plain Sight
Homeless Students in America’s Public Schools

Thursday, September 22, 2016
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET

The number of homeless students in our nation’s public schools has risen significantly since 2006, reaching over 1.3 million in 2013-14. What more can be done to help homeless students stay on track to graduation and on to a more stable future?

Civic Enterprises, the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth, the Raikes Foundation, and America’s Promise Alliance invite you to join a webinar to learn more about the current state of homeless students in America’s public schools. In addition, the webinar will address new ESSA guidelines that will require districts and states – for the first time – to report high school graduation rates for homeless students.

Speakers will include:

  • Tanya Tucker, Vice President of Alliance Engagement, America’s Promise Alliance
  • Erin Ingram, Policy Advisors, Civic Enterprises
  • Barbara Duffield, Director of Policy and Programs, National Association for the Education of Homeless Youth and Children
  • Patricia A. Popp, Ph. D., State Coordinator with Project HOPE-VA and Clinical Associate Professor, School of Education, The College of William and Mary
  • Hannah Johnson, a student who has experienced homelessness and is now a sophomore studying elementary education at Virginia Commonwealth University
The webinar stems from the report – Hidden in Plain Sight – written by Civic Enterprises with Hart Research Associates and recently released by the GradNation campaign. The report looks into how educators, policymakers and community organizations can help more students cope with homelessness, graduate from high school and get on a path to adult success.
