Op-Ed from JCCA CEO Ronald E. Richter in the New York Daily News
The Education Foster Kids Deserve
JCCA CEO Ronald E. Richter writes, “One of the first steps a school can take to support students is to encourage discussions of foster homes and other non-traditional families in everyday classroom conversations. 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.”
