ADOPTION IN THE SCHOOLS: A LOT TO LEARN:

Promoting Equality and Fairness for all Children and Their Families

Policy Perspective

Prepared by: The Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute

The Center for Adoption Support and Education

“I know that all families are good – my teacher taught me that.”



This policy brief – jointly researched and written by the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute and the Center for Adoption Support and Education – outlines the reasons educators need to learn more about adoption issues (including aspects of foster care), explains the negative consequences of a lack of knowledge, and proposes steps that teachers, schools, curriculum developers and institutions of higher education can take to change the status quo and, as a result, make vital progress toward placing all children and families on a level playing field in the classroom and beyond.


This Policy Perspective was published September 2006.
