Schoolchildren

Brittney Nance helps her daughter Izabella, 7, with homework as Henry Nance, 5, and Lillie Nance, 2, play on the bed in their motel room at the Old Town Inn March 5, 2009 in West Sacramento, California. Brittney and her family were evicted from the house they were renting after her husband, Steve Nance, lost his job. The couple and their three children are living in a budget motel while they save enough money for deposit on a new rental home, but are finding it difficult as they pay nearly $1200 a month for the motel room. All five live in a small studio sized room with most of their belongings. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
