Homework without a home
Helping homeless students in Seattle
One in every 16 students in Seattle is homeless – and one in every 27 in Washington state. About half are in 5th grade or younger. And 87 percent of homeless kids in Seattle Public Schools are students of color, widening the achievement gap between black and white students. The Seattle Times LiveWire event series and The Seattle Times’ Project Homeless took a hard look at homelessness in our city to help homeless kids stay in school, find permanent housing and learn to thrive.
