(2014) Fostering Success in Education: National Factsheet on the Educational Outcomes of Children in Foster Care

When supported by strong practices and policies, positive school experiences can counteract the negative effects of abuse, neglect, separation, and lack of permanency experienced by the nearly 400,000 U.S. children and youth in foster care. With crosssystem
collaboration, we are positioned to build on what is being learned, bring about change, and promote success for all children and youth in foster care.
