School and city leaders in San Francisco are considering opening a homeless shelter in the gym of a K-8 public school for homeless students and their families. It's said to be the first of its kind.

San Francisco Supervisor Hillary Ronen (@HillaryRonen) is spearheading the idea, and she speaks with Here & Now's Eric Westervelt (@Ericnpr).
