Three KERA Stories Worth Reading: On Refugees, Homeless Students, and Pre-K

On homeless kids, refugee families, and the first day of pre-K
By  |

Preparing to go back to school this afternoon — which, weirdly, terrifies me — so there won’t be a new post until tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a reminder that education reporter Bill Zeeble and the reporters at KERA do a great job covering education. You should check out these three stories:

• Zeeble on homeless students in DISD. (There are nearly 3000 homeless kids in the district; including about 100 at North Dallas High alone.)

• Doualy Xaykaothao on the first day of pre-K in Fort Worth.

• Stella Chavez on what the first day of school is like for refugee families.
