This discussion aims to address the challenges that foster youth face in pursuing higher education. With little to no family and community support college is more demanding for foster youth. About 50% of foster youth graduate from high school and less than 3% of foster youth graduate from four-year colleges. Additionally, first generation foster youth face their own unique identities and trials in college. This discussion will include a personal perspective of how foster youth are viewed in the education system.
