Viewing Homeless Education Programs Through an Equity Lens
Features Carolyn Cobb, Iowa Department of Education state homeless coordinator. Cobb will be joined by Julia Sullivan and Tiffany Wood from Iowa State University and Emily Teeter from the Cedar Rapids Community School District. The session aims to inform educational organizations about homelessness, so that myths and stereotypes can give way to better informed decision-making processes. Presentation focuses on the importance of equity to McKinney Vento programming, PK-12 and college-level considerations, outreach and identification of students, service delivery, policy review and framing equity in your community. Webinar attendees will also be provided with resources.
