Aligning Housing and Education: Evidence of Promising Practices and Structural Challenges

Abstract

This brief presents what we know about housing’s effects on education and examines local efforts to improve educational outcomes by ensuring the quality, affordability, or stability of students’ housing. It also discusses the structural barriers to housing stability and educational resources by examining the ways in which the education and housing systems are aligned to limit opportunity for people of color and people with low incomes. The brief concludes with recommendations for short- and longer-term actions to align the two systems through joint partnerships, metrics, and advocacy.
