Subject:Re: Foster Care and Prisoners

Dear Prof. Goodman, I will forward your request to colleagues who might be able to help. The National Center for Youth Law has a strong interest in the school-to-prison and foster-care-to-prison "pipeline." Please keep us in mind for future inquiries. Edward Opton, Ph.D., J.D. PsychDrugs Action National Center for Youth Law 405 14th St., 15th Floor Oakland, CA 94612 510-835-8098 www.youthlaw.org On Wed, Feb 26, 2014 at 8:51 PM, Gail Goodman > wrote: Dear Colleagues, For a literature review for my State, I seek reports, publications, and statistics on the percentage of prisoners in prison who were formerly in foster care. I am primarily interested in prison rather than county jails but the two may be intertwined in some states. Also if there is any data on the topic going in the opposite direction (i.e. what percentage of youth in foster care end in prison), that would also be a much interest. I would greatly appreciate any guidance, references, or information you can provide. My contact information is below, if you prefer to send information that way. Thank you for your help!
