Educating homeless children is a national dilemma that presents significant challenges, particularly to the organizations who serve this population and to the architects who design their facilities. In this presentation, leaders of the Positive Tomorrows School for Homeless Children in Oklahoma City and the Covenant House in New York will discuss their visions and the daily issues they face in educating homeless children. Their architects will present designs for new facilities that address their unique needs, highlighting the differences between these learning environments and standard schools.
