The California Children’s Report Card grades the state on its ability to support better outcomes for kids, from prenatal to age 26. Each grade is based on the state’s progress (or lack thereof) on passing and implementing state-level policies and making investments in the supports and services needed for all kids to reach their full potential. The Pro-Kid Agenda provides recommendations to the state’s leaders on how to improve outcomes for kids in each section. Access the report here.
"As you’ll see from the Report Card, today’s kids face too many barriers to accessing the quality supports and services they need to reach their full potential. California must take swift action to break down these barriers, first and foremost for children of color, and then by addressing the intersectional impacts of poverty, immigration status, gender, sexual orientation, and foster care system involvement." - Ted Lempert, President, Children Now
