Abstract

A report out today has found that children in care are less likely to achieve the national minimum standards in literacy and numeracy, with the gap growing substantially over time. The report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) compared child protection data and the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) results.
