Raising a New Generation in the South: A Preliminary Report.
Breen, Paula; Scarborough, Margaret
This brief, preliminary report sets forth in broad strokes a profile of children in the South. Demographic, educational, and program resources data are provided. The report is considered a beginning step in the process of developing baseline data about the unique characteristics of Southern children. Three themes are evident in the report: (1) improvement in health, education and economic conditions has occurred, (2) unique problems requiring continuing action remain, and (3) many questions about how well public policies and resources match the unique needs of Southern children have yet to be answered. Data reported usually represent a 14 state area, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
