Annual study finds child education, health improving
from Education Week
Children's health and education are showing positive signs even in the midst of a dismal economic environment, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation's annual ranking of child well-being. The 23rd annual Kids Count Data Book represents an overhaul of the Baltimore-based group's historically health-dominated 10 benchmarks. This year the indicators have been expanded to "holistically measure" child well-being, incorporating 16 measures of health, education, economic well-being and family and community support, according to Laura Speer, an associate director for advocacy reform and data at the foundation.
