Notes:

"Homeless youth face countless barriers limiting their ability to complete a high school diploma and transition to postsecondary education. More than half of the 1.5 million homeless youth in America are in fact living 'doubled-up,' staying with family or friends because of economic hardship and often on the brink of full-on homelessness. Educational Experiences of Hidden Homeless Teenagers investigates the effects of these living situations on educational participation and higher education access."
