Homelessness And Homeless Families

Satisfactory Essays
The unemployed and homeless families play a part in our struggling society. Children from these families are more likely to have health issues and not attend school regularly. They are more likely to have emotional and behavioral problems, as well as, learning disabilities. If their families find jobs, they are usually the jobs that are eliminated first when the economy is not doing very well. The McKinney-Vento Act passed in 1987 made schools provide protection to children who are in this situation. The McKinney-Veto Act raised school attendance from 25% to 85%.
