“The sixteen hours and forty-nine minutes between school ending one day, and starting the next, for some kids, are the longest hours of their entire lives..” —Robin Stuht
Honest, candid interviews with three Beloit Memorial High School students, including heart-felt accounts of other unaccompanied youth in our area, reveal the struggle homeless students face at the high school level. Insight from both educational and community leaders sheds light on how we may be a part of the solution.
It’s not political, it’s not religious—it’s simply, “How do we love these kids?”
