See How the City’s Homelessness Crisis Affects Your School

(DNAINFO)  Amy Zimmer | February 16, 2017 — A new map shows the percentage and number of homeless students at city schools.

If New York City’s homeless schoolchildren had their own district, it would almost be bigger than Boston’s and Seattle’s combined, according to the Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness.

One of every eight New York City public school students has experienced homelessness in the past five school years, according to an analysis of 2014-15 data by the Institute which released an interactive map Wednesday providing school-by-school data on homeless attendees.
