Measuring disparities for children is a key step toward addressing disadvantage. Careful measurement of sensitive issues can bring greater understanding. In turn, understanding informs new initiatives that can lead to meaningful changes for children. Read more

Quotes from Communities

Harrisburg is small for a city and is the capital of PA. It is financially strapped and the schools are hurting. They are crowded and many minorities live in the city.
