In a 1998 essay entitled “Distancing the Homeless,” the writer and social critic Jonathan Kozol argues that the homeless are subject to many misconceptions. “A misconception …is not to uproot, particularly when it serves a useful social one. The notion that the homeless are largely psychotics who belong in institutions, rather than victims of displacement at the hands of enterprising realtors, spares us from the need to offer realistic solutions to the…extremes of wealth and poverty in the United States”. Review the professional literature of the causes of homelessnessover the past eighteen months. Choose a still popular misconceptions about homelessness—one that involves coming to terms with a sense of place—and write an argumentative essay in which you correct the misconception or unexamined assumption evident in that misconception.
