Children Now Statement in Response to Gov. Schwarzenegger's State of the State Address

Jan 06, 2010

The following is a statement by Ted Lempert, President of Children Now, regarding Gov. Schwarzenegger’s State of the State address:

“California’s prosperity or demise will be determined by how well lawmakers can address the education and health issues undermining the development of the state’s 9.4 million children. Clearly, a long-term and sustainable economic recovery relies on the strength of future generations. But, as Children Now’s 2010 California Report Card shows, children’s well-being in the state continues to decline. This is due in large part to underinvestment in and poor prioritization of the state’s most valuable asset: our kids.”
