High school student (honors, AP) thrown out of school for being poor. In another state. A blogger vents here.

UPDATE:  The district backed down. Same blogger explains here.

    That’s odd. I live in a Long Island district, and there are signs posted in the offices that state you’re allowed to attend school even if you’re homeless, and what steps to take if you have problems.

    It’s another state… and it looks like the kid’s family was claiming to live with someone else while they tried to find new digs. It’s got to be hard to admit you’re homeless.
