“Factors facilitating the school inclusion of children in the protection system”

This presentation focuses on the educational paths of children in the protection system, whether in residential or family accommodation, as well as on their transition to adult life. Studies show how the population in foster care runs the greatest risk of school dropout. Therefore, it is necessary not only to analyze what factors influence their school situation, but also to set the guidelines that can facilitate the necessary changes in policies and professional practice with the aim of implementing substantial improvements in their school lives.
