Housing Strategies as Education Policy
Chapter ten proposes changes to educational policy to make secure housing an essential right for students, and to improve the quality and stability of students’ housing to allow for all children to thrive without having to worry about their basic needs being met.
“Educational outcomes are affected by the quality, stability, affordability, and location of a students’ housing. Many families are forced to compromise on aspects of the housing bundle, trading affordability for quality and some to don’t have housing at all. A comprehensive education [policy] strategy must ensure that all students have high-quality, affordable housing that supports educational opportunity.”
