They live in motels and shelters or bunk with friends or relatives. And some live on the streets. About 27,390 students were identified in Washington as being homeless during the 2011-12 school year. That's a startling jump of 46 percent since 2007-08. Thousands of those students live in Snohomish County. The Everett School District had the highest number of students identified as homeless, with 824. We first reported on this problem last Sunday. Today we revisit homelessness among the young with a closer look at the data.
