National research finds that educational outcomes for children and youth in foster care lag behind their peers. Unfortunately, the landscape in Nevada is similar. For instance, recent data shared by Clark County School District finds that graduation rates and grade point averages are significantly lower for eleventh and twelfth grade students in foster care than their peers. This infographic provides an illustration of many of the findings including in the Guinn Center’s Policy Report: “At a Tipping Point: Educational Outcomes for Children in Foster Care in Clark County School District.”
