Making a connection: School engagement of young people in care

Clare Tilbury, Peter Creed, Nicholas Buys, Jennifer Osmond and Meegan Crawford

This article explores the school engagement of young people in care in Queensland. Surveys were conducted with 202 young people in care and a matched comparison group, regarding school connectedness, sources of support, and perceived value of education. The findings suggest that school engagement should be an important part of case planning.
