What Teachers and Educators Can Do to Help Youth In Foster Care

This is a fabulous resource for teachers and educators seeking information about students from foster care. 

These students face many unique challenges in school, including placement changes, lost records, and inconsistent support.

  • Exploring student academic history
  • Classroom behavior and achievement
  • Learning disabilities
  • Learning relationships
  • Support system collaboration
  • Preparation for postsecondary education
  • Additional resources
