 Understanding McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Rights

Homeless students have strong rights regarding their education. This section will attempt to present those rights in a way that will be helpful to homeless families and teens, educators, shelter staff, and persons concerned about access to education for the millions of kids without homes in this country.

This will be a work in progress, dependent on cyber-colleagues and their efforts. (New, improved law as of 12/10/15, will be implemented 7/1/16.)

Thanks to the good folks at National Center for Homeless Education! They are a tremendous resource for students, parents, educators and anyone concerned about educational access for students experiencing homelessness.
