IAG 2 Cover Thumbnail ImageWe are proud to announce the release of Part 2 of the Invisible Achievement Gap, developed in partnership between The Center for Teaching and Learning at West Ed and the University of California, Berkeley.  Part 1 of the report, released last fall, compared the educational outcomes of students from foster care to other at risk student subgroups and the general population.  The second part of this research provides a more comprehensive understanding of the experiences of youth in foster care as it relates to their educational outcomes. Specifically, the Invisible Achievement Gap, Part 2 highlights the context for this problem, noting factors that hinder positive educational outcomes, such as multiple school moves, enrollment in low performing schools, and diagnosis of learning disabilities.
