Subject:RE: impact of poor quality foster care

Dear Wendy, You may wish to read the 2007 study, Child Protection and Child Outcomes: Measuring the Effects of Foster Care by Joseph J. Doyle, Jr. Dr. Doyle is a professor at MIT and accordingly, this study appears in the American Economic Review - a rather unusual source for foster care studies! I don't believe this study controlled for the quality of foster care. Rather, the author compares outcomes of foster care alumni to the outcomes of children from similar homes who received in-home services and thus were able to remain with their families.

Can anyone suggest any literature that addresses this in some way? Thanks, Wendy Rha, MSW RSW
