Homeless Education Plan:
The 1987 Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act was enacted to confront
the problems associated with homelessness in the United States. This program is
authorized under Title VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. It
was reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The McKinney-Vento Act
mandates state action to ensure that homeless children and youth have equal access to
the same free and appropriate public education as their nonhomeless counterparts.
