Education data grim for Arizona children in foster care

A recent WestEd report showed that Arizona youth in foster care had educational outcomes far worse than low income children and other at-risk subgroups.

“Prior to this year, we never had data that looked at the actual outcomes for foster children around the state,” but this WestEd report “shows how philanthropy, the nonprofit community, our education partners and state government can come together to not only identify what needs to be done, but to put real viable solutions in place,” said Vince Yanez, executive director for education and public policy at Arizona Community Foundation.
