OLIVARES ESCOBEDO, Manuel  and  VEGA BRIONES, Germán. Young Migrants in the Foster Care System: the Case of The Academy. Norteamérica [online]. 2015, vol.10, n.1, pp.165-190. ISSN 2448-7228.

The central idea of this article is to show how The Academy, a new educational system created exclusively for young people in U.S. foster care, a system designed for under age youth's temporary home education and protection, helps in dealing with personal and educational problems. It centers specifically on the case of young MexicanAmerican or Mexican-origin youth in foster care nationwide. We use the case of the Academy to study the viability of this kind of educational institution.

Keywords : foster care system; migration; foster youth; education; mistreatment; abuse.
