Yesterday, Lord Triesman tabled a debate in the Lords about the education of adopted children. We're very proud to see how much of our research and recommendations is quoted. Lord Triesman said: "Nearly four in five adopted children say of themselves that they are confused and worried at school and believe that other kids enjoy school far more.
Two-thirds report being bullied or teased because of adoption. Some 70% of their parents fear lower attainment and three-fifths of those do not feel that their kids have an equal chance. These latter data come from Adoption UK, which I regard as an exceptional body."
