The Educational Outcomes of Children in Care in Manitoba
This report presents descriptive and statistical analyses regarding children placed in the care of Manitoba Child and Family Services. The Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) was asked to identify factors that contribute to the educational success of children in care in Manitoba and to make recommendations regarding what schools, school districts and the provincial Department of Education and Advanced Learning could to do to further contribute to the educational success of students in care. In order to fulfill this request, MCHP identified 5 main objectives for this report, and each of these will be addressed in this presentation: 1) describe the characteristics of children in care in Manitoba; 2) describe the educational outcomes of children in care in Manitoba; 3) identify factors that are associated with positive (and negative) educational outcomes for children in care in Manitoba; 4) provide information on programs that improve educational outcomes for children in care; and 5) provide recommendations on how educational outcomes for children in care can be improved in Manitoba.
