dc.description.abstractThis pragmatic article, the first exhaustive review of the issue, details how lawyer advocates can help homeless children have access to the education to which they are legally entitled. Topics discussed include: legal background and authority, seeking alternatives to litigation, litigating, settling, after a settlement is reached or a decision occurs, and the future of homeless education rights. Incorporating cases, personal interviews with the attorneys who litigated the cases, settlements, complaints, motions and other non-published court documents, state and federal statutes, state administrative codes, federal and state constitutions, congressional testimony, educational agency reports, law review articles, reports by homeless advocacy groups, newspaper articles and more, the author provides a beginning-to-end roadmap for anyone facing resistance from ignorant or hostile school boards.en_US
