KICKER: “With almost 10 percent of NYC’s students living in a state of homelessness, creating a discrete group of Jump Start schools makes sense. It should not be seen as an effort to segregate these students, but to elevate them.” -  Ralph da Costa Nunez, president of the Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness, via City Limits.
