Abstract

This study of children once described as ‘in care’ (now ‘looked after away from home’) was produced by the Centre for the Child and Society,University of Glasgow and commissioned by the Scottish Office. It is concerned to find out the extent to which being in public care is an educational hazard.It focuses on how the gap between social work and education can be bridged to improve opportunities for these children. The research, carried out in Scotland in 1997, examined local provision, using United Kingdom material for comparison. It concluded that education has had a low priority.
