Due to the economic and housing crisis, the rate of homelessness is rapidly rising. What may surprise you is that schools are stepping in to fill the gap for students and their families. Learning Matters’ producers traveled to Green Bay, Wisconsin where the number of homeless students — 504 — is at an all-time high.
Green Bay schools have to provide more basic needs than ever—food, supplies, clothes for children—while trying to raise academic achievement.
In this podcast, David Wald, Managing Producer at Learning Matters, sat down with producers Valerie Visconti and Tania McKeown to talk about the growing number of homeless youth in Green Bay’s Public Schools.
