How Schools Can Succeed In Educating Poor and Homeless Children
Date: Wednesday October 3rd

Description: As the new school year gets underway, we’ll highlight the connection between education and poverty.

What’s working (and what isn’t) in the schools responsible for educating the city’s poorest students? And is a quality education a civil right?
