To: Schools Provide ‘Oasis of Stability’ to Homeless Children
To the Editor:
I am a teacher in a NYC Public School in Manhattan. I teach
first grade and this year I have several children from homeless
shelters. This is indeed a problem that we must bring to everyone’s
attention. My main concern is that these poor children are transferred
from one school to another in the middle of the school year. Just
as they are starting to get settled in and adjust to their new
surroundings, they are sent away. This is most troublesome to
me a classroom teacher, because it leaves the student to start
all over again at multiple times a year (this year I had a student
from November to January and my school was his 3rd school of this
school year). This not only affects the student, but also the
class they have left behind. There must be mandatory regulations
as to how many different schools a child in temporary housing
can attend per year. Something must be done!

Oh my God! This really opened my eyes. I wasn’t aware of these
schools, and I really agree with the bright minded Ms. Accorso.

I think home schooling is a wonderful idea for a way for kids
to learn and I think we can learn better at home than sitting
in a class with a teacher.

Great article, especially for those of us who have fond memories
of a great high school.

Wow! I’m curious about the great need of math teachers in NYC.
I’m a math teacher here in the Philippines for 13 years and I
believe I could be a great help.
