Kid Builders Project - Phase III: Lost in the Shuffle: the Impact of Homelessness on Children’s Education in Toronto

The Kid Builders Research Project, examining the educational needs of homeless children living in Toronto and the links between homelessness and school success, is the first major study to investigate the education of homeless children in Canada and begins to address a major gap in the literature. Phase 3 builds on the first and second phases that reported on data collected in Scarborough only, broadening the project across Toronto.

Kid Builders Phase 3 defines school success broadly as: 

Academic achievement

Social and behavioural adjustment

A sense of well-being and belonging. 

The focus is elementary schools and children aged six to twelve, inclusive (abstract from the report).
