The National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth has released a new publication, "Immigration and Schools: Supporting Success for Undocumented Unaccompanied Homeless Youth" (PDF, 1.43 MB), published in collaboration with Kids In Need of Defense, or KIND. The 16-page guide reviews the education rights of undocumented, unaccompanied homeless youth and outlines the federal laws that provide the means for youth to attend school and change their immigration status.
