US: We need political reform in the foster care system (Commentary)
Polytechnic – January 30, 2019
Foster care is a peculiar institution that allows for a minor who cannot return home for whatever reason, to find a home with a government certified caregiver. None of the homes in the system are permanent and, on average, a foster child will move two times during elementary school and four times during middle and high school. Keeping a normal education in such a system is not easy, and due to the constant moving, the student is unable to retain the information and connect it to previous concepts because they do not know what topics they’re missing.
