Examine ways foster care provides, or does not provide, preparation for
adult living to foster children. Review programs other states have adopted
to enhance the likelihood that foster care alumni will complete a secondary
education or maintain trade skills learned while in foster care. Examine
the correlation between the school drop-out pattern, job maintenance and
poverty, and foster care preparation programs for adult living.
