The 2014 California Children’s Report Card provides a complete evaluation of the current status of California’s kids to ensure that the state’s leaders make sound policy decisions and keep kids a priority in 2014 and beyond.
The report covers 27 critical education, health and child welfare issues to highlight the reality that multiple, overlapping factors determine how kids are faring in the state. Each issue area is defined, measured and graded – from A to F – offering a detailed assessment of recent progress made and a path forward. You can download individual pages of the 27 issue areas here.
The Report Card shows that the desired outcomes of the significant policymaking advancements for kids made in 2013 – like the Local Control Funding Formula, Common Core implementation and support for foster children – are tied to fixing other key problems in the state’s system of supports for children.
