NYS TEACHS: On placement, data and help

NYS TEACHS: On placement, data and help

Posted on 19. May, 2010 by in THE RIGHT TO AN EDUCATION

In New York City, a matrix of city agencies and organizations are charged with caring for homeless children. Between the Department of Education (DOE), the Department of Homeless Services (DHS), the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) and other groups, the system can feel like an alphabet soup.

Jennifer Pringle, director of the New York State Technical Assistance Center for Homeless Students (NYS TEACHS), sat down to talk about the efforts to count homeless children more accurately, the importance of data, and what helps students succeed.

    Hello fellow blogger! I’m new to blogs but I just wanted to say that I like your blog here on 2010 homeless count. It kept me reading all the way to the end… And then I went and searched for some more posts after that. 🙂 Keep up the good work, I’m always looking to learn more about Homeless People, in particular.
