We had a new kid move to our school today. At first I was super-annoyed. "Who would move their child at the end of the school year?" Then after talking to the social worker, I discovered that his family lost their home a few days ago, and is technically homeless. They are living with a family member, but according to the social worker, they are still in the "homeless" category. I am wondering does anyone know of any studies showing the effects of foreclosure on student performance?
