The amount of school kid ages children in NYC who are homeless could fill up the Barclays Center six times over, topping 100,000 for the fourth consecutive time.
According to the New York Post:
The New York State Education Department, Advocates for Children of New York's new report found that 114,085 city students — or one in ten — identified as homeless. Of those, 34,000 resided in city shelters and 73,750 were living in temporary housing with relatives and friends and other acquaintances.
Less than a third of the city’s homeless kids are reading at grade level, only 57 percent graduate from high school and for kids housed in shelters, graduation dips below 50 percent, according to the report.
