Public Service Announcement #2

I've alluded before to my professional life (for example, here) -- by which I refer to what I am supposed to be doing while sitting at my desk, rather than blogging, etc. I work for my local government in education (broadly speaking), and have had the opportunity to do a decent amount of policy-related work regarding kids in care and education. Through this work, I recently learned about a conference call tomorrow that you might be interested in.

Here are the details:

This is a reminder that the The Legal Center for Foster Care and Education will be hosting a conference callTOMORROW that explores the link between improving educational outcomes and achieving permanency for children in care. The call will feature speakers who have or are currently conducting research indicating a link between school success and increasing rates of permanency.

The discussion will also highlight several education-related factors that undermine or support permanency goals, the correlation between educationally at-risk youth and those at-risk of failing to achieve permanency, and the role of education issues in permanency planning.The call will take place on Tomorrow, August 11th at 3pm (Eastern).

  1. Thanks for the heads up! I love getting credit hours through phone-ins - no babysitting necessary. Coincidentally, sounds like a good topic too.
