San Diego Unified Sees Large Increase In Number Of Homeless Students

“About 1,500 children were cared for at St. Vincent de Paul Village last year, and about 40 percent were younger than 5, a spokesman for the charity announced Wednesday.

In San Diego, the Unified School District said about 3,000 students classified as homeless attended school last year. This year that number has grown to 5,448.

The figures were released in conjunction with a U.S. Department of Education report on homeless children in public schools that found 1.3 million youths living on the streets, “couch surfing” or part of multiple families sharing a home or motel room, up from 8 percent in 2011-12 — the most recent year for which data is available.”
