The educational needs of the half million youth in foster care at any given time remains largely unrecognized in this country’s schools. Yet the impact of the foster care experience on academic achievement is significant. A youth’s foster care status alone can be associated with a drop in standardized test scores.
To help address and improve educational outcomes for youth in care, Casey Family Programs developed the Endless Dreams video and training curriculum. These practice-oriented tools were designed to support educational advocates, education specialists, education liaisons, CASA volunteers, child welfare professionals, and others that assist youth in care with their educational needs.
