The REES Centre at the University of Oxford has recently carried out a research paper entitled “What is the relationship between being in care and the education outcomes of children?”. In the review it was stated that there is little to support the claim that being in foster care is detrimental to the educational outcomes of children.

In fact, the paper suggests that low educational outcomes of children is care is party explained by “pre-care experiences” such as neglect or mistreatment, and persist once in care, even if they are slightly reduced.
