Homeless youth face countless barriers that limit their ability to complete a high school diploma and transition to postsecondary education. Their experiences vary widely based on family, access to social services, and where they live. More than half of the 1.5 million homeless youth in America are in fact living "doubled-up," staying with family or friends because of economic hardship and often on the brink of full-on homelessness.

Educational Experiences of Hidden Homeless Teenagers investigates the effects of these living situations on educational participation and higher education access. First-hand data from interviews, observations, and document analysis shed light on the experience of four doubled-up adolescents and their families. The author demonstrates how complex these residential situations are, while also identifying aspects of living doubled-up that encourage educational success. The findings of this powerful book will give students, researchers, and policymakers an invaluable look at how this understudied segment of the adolescent population navigates their education.

Ronald E. Hallett is an Assistant Professor of Education at the University of the Pacific and a Research Associate in the Center of Higher Education Policy Analysis at the University of Southern California.

Review:

"Hallett's ethnographic study of teens living "doubled-up" provides a thorough and compassionate exploration of the complex nature of educational participation for youth experiencing residential instability."  ― P. M. Del Prado Hill, Buffalo State College, CHOICE

"In Educational Experiences of Hidden Homeless Teenagers: Living Doubled-Up, Hallett succeeds in identifying
risk and protective factors that increase or decrease a doubled-up adolescent’s chance of achieving educational
resilience." ― Erin Nicole Johnson, Journal of Youth and Adolescence
