Discusses how young people in the public care system are discriminated against not only by those outside the care system, such as employers and schools, but by the agencies involved in the provision of service in the public care and welfare system. Looks at careism and control; crime and punishment, education, privacy and leaving care. Makes suggestions to help eradicate the theory of careism.
