I'm impressed! You've managed the aoslmt impossible.

Thank you for your comment. More work certainly needs to be done to adequately support homeless students here in the United States, and it's a tough task for school and shelter staff to shoulder given continuous funding shortfalls. The issue seems to receive less attention abroad than in the US (given the difficulty we had in finding evidence in our online research), where we have organizations such as the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth (NAEHCY) dedicated solely to the cause.

It would be worthwhile to find out what other policies exist in various areas, then find out what the actual practices are. I think we'd be horrified. Thanks for your provocative article.
