Fostering education: supporting foster carers to help children and young people learn

28 Nov 2016
Description

Children and young people in out of home care deserve a good education. Yet although many do well at school, others have poor educatonal outcomes. At the same time research clearly demonstrates that when foster carers support education and learning it can have a significant impact on educational aspiration, progress and achievement.  This study documents the experiences of 113 Tasmanian foster carers in supporting education, what helps or hinders them in this role and how they can be better supported to support education.  The study concludes with 18 recommendations about how to improve educational outcomes for these students.
