it's very important to educate these children. I believe every child should have the right to good education.

Homeless children score lower than their housed peers on achievement tests and are less likely to be promoted at the end of the school year. Their failure to succeed will, no doubt, have long-term repercussions, as indicated by the research on academic failure, school mobility, and grade retention. No study has looked at dropout rates for homeless children. Related research on housed children indicates the risk (Rafferty 1995).

1.6 million children are homeless. All of them need food, shelter, a stable family life and good education.

Isn't it important to help them not be homeless? Prioritize.

I agree this is a ridiculous question. Yes, they should be educated but after their primary needs are reached. These include food and shelter.

Education is necessary no matter what a child's family situation is. How else can they better themselves?

Education is for everyone. They have a right to that. It's the only thing that can make their lives better. Going to school can make them see a better way of life.

Education is important because it gives people the skills to navigate the world. Homeless kids specially need this so they can have a better life in the future. They can be confident and competent in getting jobs.
