According to a 2021 Rudd Adoption Research Report on “Teachers and Adopted Children”

Only 15% of teachers in their sample reported having received any teacher training or professional development about adoption

Only 2.4% felt “very prepared” by their education/training to work with adopted students and families.

70%-85% of teachers agreed that learning about issues such as common challenges among adopted children, adopted children’s educational needs and challenges, developing curricula with awareness of adopted children and the role of trauma in adopted children’s behavior, would be “very helpful” to new teachers
