Adolescence is prime time for closing opportunity gap
from THE Journal
A new research project has suggested that the dramatic changes that take place in the brains of young people offer "unique opportunities for positive, life-shaping development and for recovering from past adversity." For that to happen, however, the country also needs to address inequities in education, healthcare and other areas "that undermine the well-being of many adolescents and leave them less able to take advantage of the promise offered by this stage of life." People aged 10 to 25 make up almost a fourth of the U.S. population.
