Life Lessons

Today as part of our education series, we check-in with the Banks family: 13-year-old Teara and her parents, Teresa and Darnell. We spoke with her and her family early this summer about the challenges of being homeless and living out of their mini-van. The family eventually found an apartment. But now, just as school has started again, the family can't make rent and has to move. Dick talks with Teara and her parents about what it will take to keep Teara and her three siblings in their schools.
