Foundation Seeks Charters to Change Educational Outcomes for Foster Youth in Sacramento County
Foster youth are the most vulnerable kids in our community. The Children's Report Card, released by the Sacramento County Children's Coalition showed that less than half (47.5%) of foster youth in Sacramento complete their high school degree or equivalency by the time they exit the foster youth system. The Sacramento County average graduation rate for the same period was 77.9%. The Stuart Foundation has partnered with CCSA to identify high-performing charter schools in Sacramento County that are willing to be a part of reversing the trend.
