Children in out-of-home placement face many more difficulties in school than the general population. Social workers, parents, foster parents, CASAs, probation staff and others can help these children reach their potential by advocating for success in their education. This workshop provides practical knowledge and tools for educational advocacy.
After attending this training, participants will be able to:
- Understand educational law and the advocacy process
- Advocate effectively for children’s educational success
- Understand the legal rights of children in California
This course will better equip child welfare practitioners in their scope of practice when monitoring the educational services and outcomes of the children they serve.
