Op-Ed from JCCA CEO Ronald E. Richter in the New York Daily News

The Education Foster Kids Deserve

 

JCCA CEO Ronald E.

By normalizing the topic without identifying any particular student, children in care feel validated and seen, even if they choose not to disclose their family situation to their peers.
