Description:
This study aimed to tackle three main research questions: " What are the day to day experiences of education and schooling for young people aged 13 to 14 years in long term foster care? " What kind of social supports do these young people have available to them beyond the foster family in which they are placed? (Social supports are measured here in terms of contact with birth family, friendship networks and participation in hobbies/leisure activities). " What relationship, if any, do placement conditions have with young people’s education and schooling, as well as their social supports?
