Student homelessness hits record high

5 The Black people of today who are blindly helping the white people to destroy this civilization are like Samson was in his day and time; he helped to pull the building down, but he was blind to the effect of the destruction of the building. All Samson wanted to do was to get even with his mockers who had put out his eyes and who laughed at him. Samson did not care whether there would be a civilization left behind him or not. He was willing to die, blind to the knowledge of the future of his people and those people he was destroying.

6 Throughout America, her colleges, her universities and her teachers are in danger. The students no longer want old world guidance. It is a new world that they want. But in their mad destruction of the old world they do not know how to prepare for a new world civilization. They do not have guidance for a new civilization, and in their madness they refuse to hear a teacher teaching of an educational system of a better civilization…the civilization of the Black man.

7 The wisdom of the educational system of the aboriginal Black Man of the earth has never been known to this world because the Black man was put to sleep in order to let this world (white man) try itself at ruling. Now the rule of this world has been found to be dissatisfying and the dissatisfaction is 100 per cent.

8 Allah (God) has come to take over and to guide another people into setting up a better educational system for the people of whom He Himself is the Head. And we all get guidance from Him, as Daniel said in his prophesy, “God will set up a kingdom and He will leave it into the hands of others, but He Himself will guide it.” But first He must remove all the rubbish if this white man’s world educational system. He discards America’s educational system, as we discard rubbish to be burned up.

9 The black man who hears the teachings of Islam feels proud that he has been taught something that he has wished for all of his life. But the average Black man that hears does not accept it as he should. He accepts it in such a way that he can be criticized and mocked: for he wants to take a piece of it, as he has done in the past and he runs away with it claiming that he knows this. He will try to set up something of his own from a few words of it. This throws the Black man behind. They do this through envy, jealousy, and proudness on the part of the person. This is the way the Black man of America is divided. The devil knows that the Black man is proud and envious. The white man helps him to be this way so that the Black man will never get any place towards self, if the Black man takes such steps to divide himself up.

The number of homeless students in public preschools, elementary schools, middle schools and high schools is at an all-time high.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

The number of homeless students in U.S. public schools is at an all-time high, according to new data.

There were 1.2 million homeless students during the 2011-12 academic year, from preschool all the way through high school. That’s up 10% from last year and 72% from the start of the recession, according to the most recent data available from the National Center for Homeless Education, which is funded by the Department of Education.

Advocacy groups say continuing economic struggles are causing more students to end up homeless, meaning that they live in shelters, motels, or are staying temporarily with someone else because they have nowhere to live.

“The recession isn’t over for America’s poorest families,” said Barbara Duffield, Policy Director of the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth. “There’s a gap between what jobs are available, what those jobs pay and what affordable housing is available.”

She said school employees — from teachers to bus drivers to cafeteria workers — have been getting better at identifying homelessness, a factor that may also be contributing to the greater number of homeless students.

States with the biggest populations of homeless students include California and Florida, while the biggest spikes in year-over-year homelessness were seen in Maine and Michigan.

But the true number of homeless students is likely even higher than what is being reported.

“There are a lot of kids, especially in high school, who really hide [that they are homeless] and try to stay under the radar — they’re just embarrassed,” said Duffield. “And parents are afraid they will be removed from their custody, so there are definitely kids that go unseen.”

Homelessness is even a problem at the college level. Duffield said 58,158 college applicants indicated that they were homeless on federal financial aid forms this year — up from 53,705 in the previous year. And that number is likely understated as well, since many families don’t realize they fall into this category or don’t want to admit to it. To top of page
