The Credit Crunch and Kiddos

The Brookings Institute released a well researched report called The Impact of the Mortgage Crisis on Children and Their Education. The report tries to calculate the number of school children who will be displaced from their homes due to foreclosures as the mortgage crisis marches on.

The estimate is 144,400 schoolchildren in Texas will be forced out of their homes, and 1.8 million children nation-wide.

This is a good time to provide a link to the Texas Homeless Education Office. Read about the resources and policies there.
