11 States Struggle to Meet Education Requirements for Foster Youth

 A little more than a year after federal law mandated school districts across the country ensure foster youth are transported to school, at least 11 states are outright failing – or are clearly struggling – to make this happen, according to new reporting by The Chronicle of Social Change.

Starting in November and running through December, The Chronicle sent media requests to state departments of education in all 50 states. The requests asked whether or not states were in compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act’s (ESSA) foster youth transportation mandate.
