A group blog on child well-being:

What Can We Do to Help Kids?
As part of our KIDS COUNT initiative, MassBudget is participating in a new group blog about the well-being of children in Massachusetts:

The blog brings together leading voices in child advocacy and public policy research to present a fuller picture of the ways we can help children reach their potential. For instance . . . We know they need good K-12 schools. And to really benefit from those schools they also need good early education & care. And if they lack quality health care, they may not be able to fully participate in school or community life. And if their communities are unsafe or their families face economic insecurity, stress and danger may keep them from play and learning. These things are all interconnected in the lives of children.

Contributors to the blog have expertise--and long experience--across these areas: in early education & care, mental and physical health, K-12 education, children with disabilities, child poverty, juvenile justice, and beyond. Each has written a first post (listed below) introducing themselves and sharing some of the policy ideas they are currently pursuing. Future posts will address urgent policy challenges, new research, major events, and other things vital to children's lives. We invite you to read the posts, join the discussion, and visit again (and again) as new posts appear in the coming days. If you prefer, you can also receive information about new posts via RSS, Twitter, or Facebook.
