Next100 policy entrepreneur Chantal Hinds and executive director of At The Table, Michael Zink, wrote an op-ed for The74 about how schools can improve the educational outcomes of youth in the foster system by increasing data transparency, investing in staff training, and creating communities of support. Chantal and Michael highlight how centering the voices and experiences of young people in the foster system is key to providing the support they need to succeed. They write:
“Schools can and must take steps to better understand the unique circumstances of these young people and do the meaningful work to meet them where they are with compassion and support.”
