School Suspensions and Grade Retention Among Homeless Students
For the more than 140,000 students in New York City who have been homeless, the impact of housing instability is all too real. These children are not only struggling with maintaining a place to sleep, but also attending school, succeeding academically, and accessing supports for their additional educational and behavioral needs. The 2017 Atlas of Student Homelessness in New York City provides an in-depth look at the educational outcomes of homeless students.
This interactive map focuses on homeless families in NYC who have children currently enrolled in the pubic school system. The map allows readers to visualize the amount of students in every public school in the city who do not have a stable residency.
Building upon the findings of On the Map: The Atlas of Student Homelessness in New York City 2017, ICPH developed an interactive tool for users to further explore the educational outcomes of homeless New York City students and compare outcomes between districts, boroughs, and the City overall.
