Section 1:Introduction
 The purpose o this publication is to provide an overview o research that studies the relationshipbetween homelessness and academic achievement among school-aged children and youth in theUnited States. For readers interested in conducting research on the education o homeless childrenand youth, this publication (1) provides context on child, youth, and amily homelessness rom thelate 1980s to the present; (2) summarizes policies and practices that link homeless children andyouth to educational supports and services; (3) provides an overview o selected research studiesthat examine the relationship between homelessness and academic achievement; (4) describescommonly utilized methodologies and challenges in conducting research on homeless and highlymobile populations; and (5) oers direction or urther research. The authors o this publication identied a set o 16 published articles dating rom 1987 to 2011.Studies were selected on the basis o the ollowing criteria: (1) homeless children or youth were thesubjects examined; (2) the article described a ormal research study with an articulated researchquestion and methodology; (3) the research questions examined the relationship betweenhomelessness and the educational success o homeless children and youth; and (4) the article waspublished in a peer-reviewed journal or reerenced in an article in a peer-reviewed journal. While theselected studies do not constitute a comprehensive literature review, they nevertheless representsome o the most requently cited studies in the eld and provide a snapshot o approaches toexamining the relationship between homelessness and academic achievement.In addition, the authors reviewed our articles that provided overviews o the state o research onhomeless children, which cited many o the same studies that were reviewed in this publication(Buckner, 2008; Cunningham, Harwood, & Hall, 2010; Miller, 2011; Samuels, Shinn, & Buckner, 2010). These our articles provided historical perspectives on research on homeless children, including theireducational outcomes, as well as summaries o ndings in various studies and recommendations orurther research.Homeless education is a relatively new eld or research; as such, studies in this area are limited bothin number and scope. Responding to the increased awareness o child and amily homelessness thatoccurred in the 1980s, researchers primarily rom the eld o behavioral science began to conductstudies to describe a heretoore unexamined population – children and youth in homeless amilies.Studies attempted to describe this population, otentimes in comparison with similar populations,such as housed children living in impoverished conditions. Studying highly mobile populationsposed many challenges, resulting in most studies collecting data on amilies and children livingin homeless shelters in urban areas. Many studies viewed homeless children or youth as ahomogeneous population, with only a ew recent studies attempting to identiy subgroups within asample o homeless children and youth.Questions in the research studies included in this review address ways in which homeless studentsare similar to or dierent rom housed peers; describe relationships among homelessness, cognition,and academic achievement; and identiy variables that are associated with adaptability. Conductingsuccessul research on homeless students continues to be a moving target: Homeless children andamilies are highly mobile; changing economic climates impact the demographics and numbers o
