This is the ninth in a series of Research-to-Impact briefs by Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago to understand and address youth homelessness. This brief focuses on the educational disruption often experienced by youth who are dealing with homelessness. It outlines key research findings that show how homelessness and housing instability interfere with young people’s abilities and opportunities to stay in school and pursue their educational goals. The brief includes recommendations for primary and secondary school administrators, administrators at institutions of higher education, and representatives of homelessness systems.
