Description - Children on the Streets of the Americas by Roslyn Arlin Mickelson
The number of street children in developed and developing nations is rising, often in the midst of prosperity. These essays study and compare the living conditions and educational experiences of homeless children in the United States, Brazil and Cuba. Because social policy and economic factors are central to these children's plights, the contributors employ a political economy perspective to examine the lives of the children and the educational and social programmes - successful and unsuccessful - that are designed to serve them. The book examines formal and informal programmes, compares and contrasts children's situations in each country, and offers policy recommendations. Throughout the book, case studies are combined with recent statistical and demographic facts about each country.
