Schools and districts are seeing unprecedented numbers of students and families living without residential stability. Although the McKinney-Vento Act has been around for over two decades, many district- and site-level practitioners have a difficult time interpreting and implementing the Act's mandates within their local contexts. This book provides much-needed guidance to help educational leaders support students who are homeless and highly mobile students who face significant barriers related to access and academic success. The authors employ several different strategies to help translate complex state and federal policies into effective practices. They include policy analysis, examples of successful approaches, tools for training staff, youth experiences, and address the role of school districts in serving marginalized students. Serving Students Who Are Homeless can be used as a professional development tool at the local and district level, and as a textbook in higher education settings that prepare entry-level and advanced-credential administrators, counselors, school psychologists, and curriculum leaders.

Teach the next generation that it is possible to change the world with the inspiring curriculum guide, It's My Business: Inspiring Students' Ideas for a Better Community. Author Roxie Hentz, PhD, applies over twenty-five years of experience to create a fully developed curriculum resource aligned to academic standards with detailed lessons, interactive activities, and group projects that will equip educators and youth leaders with the tools they need to introduce the concept of social entrepreneurship. Many students already engage in social entrepreneurial activities - whether it's using their money to aid animals at the local shelter, buying food for a neighboring soup kitchen that serves the homeless, or something else close to their hearts. By more formally exposing them to this innovative field, students will learn how to take social issues they're passionate about and turn them into real businesses that help their communities in meaningful ways. At the same time, they also strengthen critical thinking, build leadership skills, develop a sense of self-responsibility, improve confidence, and promote problem-solving techniques-all skills that can transfer to success both in school and beyond. The lessons and activities ultimately build toward a project in which students get to develop and manage their own classroom social enterprise. This process of learning through real-life experiences challenges them to view business as a way of improving or changing their community-and even the world around them.

The Other Philadelphia Story

How Local Congregations Support Quality of Life in Urban America

For people living in U.S. cities, social services come not only from the government but increasingly also from local religious communities. Ever since the Clinton administration's welfare reform, faith-based institutions, and especially congregations, have been allowed to bid for federal funds for their programs. In The Other Philadelphia Story, drawing on the first-ever census of congregations in any American city, Ram Cnaan and his colleagues provide an authoritative account of the functioning of congregations, their involvement in social services, and their support of other charitable organizations. An in-depth study of 1,392 congregations in Philadelphia, the book illuminates how these groups function as community hubs where members and neighbors alike gather throughout the week. Cnaan's findings show that almost every assembly of parishioners emphasizes caring for others, even if the help is modest. Thus American congregations uphold an implicit but strong norm of social responsibility and work to improve the quality of life for members and nonmembers alike. Many of the problems associated with urban life persist in the face of governmental inaction, and the burden of responsibility cannot be shouldered entirely by congregations. However, in a city such as Philadelphia, where half the residents are regular attenders of religious congregations, hopes for urban improvement are largely to be found in these local groups. Special focus is given in the book to kinds of care that often go unnoticed: volunteerism, provision of refuge, and informal assistance to community members in need. All told, Cnaan asserts, congregations are an essential component of Philadelphia's civil society. Without them, the quality of life would deteriorate immeasurably.
