McDowell News: Number of homeless students in McDowell County rises

From McDowell News:

“Our numbers are so big that we were questioned about them,” said Seals. “Right now we have 1,105 students that are considered homeless because they are doubled up or perhaps living in substandard homes.”
During the 2011-12 school year, McDowell had 933 kids classified as homeless and the year before that 847, meaning that numbers have steadily increased over the last three years.
