Academic Achievement of African American Males in Foster Care (Workshop 66)
The purpose of this presentation will be to inform members of child welfare, education, and research communities of data and information pertaining to the academic status and instructional needs of children of color in child welfare systems. Children of color in child welfare systems are languishing behind their peers in terms of academic performance, while teachers remain uninformed as to the unique learning needs of this population. This presentation will create an awareness and enhance communication among social workers and educators critical to the improved academic functioning of foster and adoptive children.
