Parents and policy makers have long looked to close the educational, health, economic and other gaps in child well-being between children of different backgrounds. As the 2008 campaign heats up, many are wondering about the increasingly diverse generation of America's children and asking: Where is policy helping and failing to close the gaps between children of different backgrounds? Where do the gaps currently exist? What changes could have the greatest impact? On Jan. 29, we will be releasing a report that details some surprising results about the true state of the disparities between children, explains where improvements are being made, and where more work needs to be done. It will contain projections for when gaps between non-white and white children might be closed. We will discuss these gaps in the context of the Foundation for Child Development's Index of Child Well-Being. An experienced group of experts will discuss the state of disparities in child well being and what should be done to close the gaps.
