The National Center for Homeless Education offers an 18-minute video tutorial "Homeless with Homework: An Introduction to Homeless Education" that provides information on the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness. The tutorial is a great resource for new youth workers, educational liaisons and agency staff that need a refresher in understanding the causes of homelessness and resulting educational barriers. The video also shares additional ways that viewers can support the education of homeless students.
