Researchers, led by J.J. Cutuli, research director at the Intelligence for Social Policy initiative at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, report that students who were homeless or highly mobile had higher achievement gaps in reading and math overall than their peers in other at-risk groups, education reporter Sarah D. Sparks writes in this blog post. However, researchers also found that 45% of the students studied met or exceeded standards over time, despite poverty and other challenges, and were considered "resilient."
