The school did absolutely nothing to help my foster daughter. This is the type of school that really doesn't care about its students, they just pass them. When my foster daughter moved in with me she came from JGE and was in 4th grade, come to find out after testing she really belonged on 3rd grade and JGE was giving her honor-roll grades! REALLY!!! How does a child get honor roll grades when she can't even pass the test to be in 4th grade? Horrible. She had to be held back and is doing much better at her new school. I also found out they did the same thing to another student that was a foster child in the system. These kids (foster children) already have the cards stacked against them, so I would think the school would at least make a real effort to give them an education. Isn't it enough that their parents didn't care enough but the school doesn't care either... Disgusting!
