Abstract

Closing “poorly-performing schools” and opening small schools from which families can choose is not new educational policy for New York City; however its impact on all students has not been thoroughly evaluated. It is therefore imperative that we review the effects of these policy developments on high-needs students, specifically the most overlooked—students experiencing homelessness. For the rising number of students who are already housing displaced, becoming educationally displaced may exacerbate their educational outcomes.
