Education Committee

Sam Macer, Chairman

Education Committee Goals

Support all Maryland resource providers in their efforts to provide for the safety, permanency and well-being of the foster youth in their care.

An essential element in the area of supporting well-being is increasing and sustaining academic achievement.

Research indicates foster youth are often two grade levels behind their peers and two grade levels behind in their reading and math skills.

Poor educational outcomes are directly related to poor adult life outcomes in employment, housing, post-secondary education and criminal justice.
