CenterView: Ready to Succeed

Produced by The Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd

Description

With demographics that overlap significantly with those of students of color and those living in poverty, academic success is elusive for youth in foster care.

This issue of CenterView highlights research that shows the achievement gap experienced by foster youth leads to fewer economic opportunities and more adverse outcomes. It also explores the current state of education for foster youth and some of the circumstances that cause them to experience academic and behavioral problems in school.

Lastly, this publication suggests ways to help these students and puts forward a compelling case to bring into sharper focus the education status of foster youth.
