A National Conversation on Educational Opportunity for Students in Foster Care

October 17, 2011

On October 19th, the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI) and Fostering Media Connections (FMC) will produce a National Conversation, intended to build on a broad, existing movement to improve educational outcomes for students experiencing foster care.  Using videoconferencing technology, teachers, students and researchers in California and Illinois will share the solutions and challenges they have found with Members of Congress assembled in Washington DC. All the proceedings will be transmitted live, over the Internet.  In addition, CCAI and FMC will release a report, which frames the issue of foster care and education and gives concrete examples of how anyone can step up and help.
