Improving Educational Outcomes for Youth in Care (Monograph)By:
Youth in out-of-home care frequently repeat grades in school and are often below the appropriate grade level in reading and math. Worse, up to 80% of youth in care do not complete high school. This monograph addresses the educational needs and experiences of youth in out-of-home care, examining the factors that lead to underachievement and providing promising practices for improving educational outcomes. The specific, concrete ideas for improvement, provided by both practitioners and the youth themselves, will be helpful to child welfare workers, education professionals, and foster parents trying to help the youth they are caring for attain the education they deserve.
