We commend the Governor for working with the Legislature to create an education system that supports the educational needs of students in foster care. Though there is much potential in enacting this legislation, concrete steps must be made taken to ensure school districts have the incentive, guidance and assistance necessary to ensure students in foster care receive the educational opportunities they need.
