Getting Foster Youth to Higher Education, and Helping Them Stay There
We discuss the latest on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s directive to treat medical services for transgender youth as abuse; the Supreme Court set to decide fate of Indian Child Welfare Act (much more on that next week); and a bill aimed at reducing the need for congregate care placements in foster care.
Guest Interview Details
Ivory Bennett, a playwright and educator, joins us to discuss her own pursuit of higher education after foster care, what systems should be doing differently, and we talk about our forthcoming project that she served as a guest editor for: College Ready, Career Prepared: A Guide to Postsecondary Education for Youth in Foster Care.
