Arizona legislators rally to help foster youth find school success

Arizona Rep. John Allen has sponsored House Bill 2665, which would fund and authorize FosterEd Arizona to expand statewide its services for children in foster care. The bill, which has more than 20 bipartisan sponsors, requires charter schools to give enrollment preference to children who are in foster care, and establishes a statewide Foster Youth Education Success Program for the purpose of improving the educational outcomes of children in Arizona’s foster care system, said Michelle Traiman, director of FosterEd at the National Center for Youth Law.
