DETROIT (WWJ) – A newspaper says there were more than 31,000 homeless students in Michigan schools last year, an increase of more than 300 percent since 2007.

Experts tell the Detroit Free Press that the reason appears to be home foreclosures across the state. In the past, schools typically heard different reasons, such as fire or domestic abuse.

Kids with no permanent address are living with relatives or friends or at shelters and motels.
