    Protecting Education Rights of Foster Youth

    LRLC will provide special education legal services to foster youth with disabilities who have unmet education needs. The project will ensure they receive educational and mental health services, and will interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline by securing alternatives to disciplinary proceedings and supporting youth ageing out of the foster system and transitioning to post-secondary education. In addition, LRLC will provide trainings to foster parents and advocates to support students’ education beyond their current placement.
