…hungry or homeless.
That’s a sad statement.
A large new study sheds some light on the issues many community college students face. According to the Wisconsin HOPE Lab, two in three community college students are “food insecure,” meaning they don’t have reliable access to enough food.
“One in three have such low levels of food security that they could be considered hungry,” said Sara Goldrick-Rab, founder of the HOPE Lab and professor of higher education policy at Temple University.
Half of the 33,000 students surveyed faced housing insecurity, and 14 percent were homeless.
