Abstract
Examines the state of homelessness in Oregon, with special focus on special needs for homeless students. Looks at factors affecting housing instability, student stability rates, and what schools should do to best serve homeless students. Calls for a re-examination of homeless stereotypes, in light of the fact that one third of the homeless in Oregon are children.
