Report Summary: 

As a leading children’s charity, Barnardo’s wanted to find out more about the factors that inhibit children doing better and what young people themselves felt and thought about their experiences of education We surveyed 66 young people aged between 16 and 21 who had been in care and who are supported by Barnardo’s Leaving Care projects. They told us about their school life and education, giving information about the factors that inhibited them from doing well, those that had a positive effect and what could have helped them do better.
