Building America’s Future for Foster Youth | ED.gov Blog

We’ve all watched plenty of TV crime drama episodes that deal with foster children–mostly those who fall through the cracks. Somehow, the kids on TV always manage to beat the odds and overcome all adversity to become part of a super-duper foster family that encourages them to succeed and supports their positive efforts. Maybe that’s why foster children have been so low on the “education concerns” problem list. Finally, someone is looking at these kids as being both redeemable and currently in crisis.

Re-posted below is the blog from ed.gov that highlights the road to improvement for foster youth. Let’s hope for continued success!
