There are more than 2,000 schoolchildren in San Francisco who are homeless. The number has been rising, and schools are struggling to meet their extra needs. It's the same story in other cities as the recession takes its toll on families. We discuss how homeless students navigate the educational, social, and economic maze of school.

Guests:

Jill Tucker, education writer for the San Francisco Chronicle

Elizabeth Ancker, assistant program director of Compass Family Services SF

Nicole McAuliffe, director of advancement at Mission Dolores Academy. Former teacher and principal.

Elizabeth Torres, parent liason at Fairmount Elementary School

Terrilyn Woodfin, currently homeless with a 16-year-old son at Galileo High School and author of a forthcoming book tentatively titled "I am Homeless: The New Face of Homelessness"
