No Time to Lose: A Policy Agenda to Support College Success for Foster Youth

Over the last decade, California has made important gains in addressing the educational needs of children and youth in foster care, most notably the passage of Assembly Bill 490 in 2004 and more recently, the inclusion of foster youth as a priority population in the Local Control Funding Formula, California’s recent reform in education financing. While these gains are significant, they are focused on K to 12 education, and do not address the needs of California’s growing population of college-age foster youth. What policies must change to ensure that foster youth in California enroll, persist and ultimately succeed in college or career and technical education programs? This web seminar featured policy recommendations from the Foundation’s new publication, “No Time to Lose: A Policy Framework for Foster Youth College Success.”
