Liberals have almost completely destroyed the nuclear family and this is the result. Even with endless welfare and entitlement programs some people simply cannot make adult choices and handle freedom and responsibility.

Homeless families frequently include your typical mom, dad and kids.

And when you see something as dramatic as the doubling of homeless students in a short span (5 years), one is looking for causes other than simply redefining what is and is not a family. In fact, I believe that the birth rate has gone down in the past five years--related most likely to financial hardship. Even indicators like teen/unwed pregnancy have gone down.

The elephant in the living room--particularly when you see how a district like Groveport Madison has been hit--has to do with the foreclosure rate. Even people who are renting are impacted. If their landlord loses the house, they lose their home.
