Foster Kids Graduation Rates
Only 53% of foster children graduate high school on time or at all. A lot of children end up in the foster system due to different circumstances in their life. These kids tend to jump between foster homes and orphanages. Due to this, these kids tend to care less for their education and more on where they will be next. Which in turn lowers their grades and their confidence, convincing themselves to dropout of high school entirely. Giving these children a better support system within and outside of school as well as moving them around less I feel will increase the percentage of children graduating high school within the foster system.
