Educational Outcomes of Children in Care Report

In June, the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy released a report on The Educational Outcomes of Children in Care in Manitoba.

In Manitoba, only 47% of kids in care are ready for school and about 33% of kids in care graduate high school which means there is a lot of room for improvement.This report looks at how children in care do in school and why some kids are are more successful than others.

The report also provides valuable insight and recommendations to improve educational outcomes. Recommendations include more effective prevention and family support services, including better housing programs, anti-poverty programs, parenting classes and social services aimed at addressing the challenges these family are facing.

For a quick overview of the report, check out the 4 page summary of the report.
