    night was a total distraction for students in my H.S. GED classes.  They were usually hungry and tired and there was no way I could get them thinking about economics or math.  

    We were lucky to have a steadfast counselor for them, she had lots of contacts with agencies and other supporters, but even those kids who were ready to test were likely to drop out before getting their diploma if their housing went south.
