Separate Schools for Homeless Kids, on CBS-60 minutes, Sunday night

  This Sunday night, CBS-60 Minutes will air a story on the controversy
around separate schools for homeless children.

  The angle of their story is unknown at this time, though Morley Safer
interviewed Barbara Duffield, Education Director for the National Coalition
for the Homeless, about McKinney Act restrictions on segregation of
homeless students.  A separate school in Phoenix, The Pappas School, will
also be featured.

  Expect to see posters from McKinney projects - like Portland's Project
Return - on the walls of Barbara's office during her interview.

  Check local listings for broadcast time - it's shown 7:00-8:00 pm in most

  Dona Bolt, Ed. Specialist
  Oregon Dept. of Education
