REPORT: Homeless students in Florida trail their housed peers in attendance, academic and disciplinary indicators

Release Date: 
11/16/2017

TAMPA, Fla. – The number of homeless students identified in Tampa Bay has nearly doubled over the past decade, according to a new report on the effects of homelessness on students’ education. The report, Homelessness and Education in Florida: Impacts on Children and Youth, is co-authored by the Shimberg Center for Housing Studies at the University of Florida and Miami Homes for All. 

Commissioned by JPMorgan Chase & Co., the report explores the impacts of homelessness and housing instability on the education of children and youth in Florida by focusing on students’ experiences. The findings are based on student data provided by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) and phone interviews with school district staff serving as homelessness education liaisons in 29 counties throughout Florida.
