2014 Kids Count in Colorado! The Big Picture: Taking the Whole Child Approach to Child Well-Being
Colorado Children's Campaign
"Kids Count in Colorado!" is an annual publication of the Colorado Children's Campaign, which provides the best available state- and county-level data to measure and track the education, health and general well-being of the state's children. "Kids Count in Colorado!" informs policy debates and community discussions, serving as a valuable resource for policymakers, community leaders, advocates and citizens. This report, "The Big Picture: Taking the Whole Child Approach to Child Well-Being," highlights issues impacting kids that overlap policy areas. The report makes connections between the Children's Campaign's longstanding issues areas--early childhood, health and K-12 education--with the hope that in these areas lie solutions to some of the state's most troubling and stubborn trends. The report offers the data that policy makers, child advocates and community leaders need to make informed decisions about children in their communities. This year, attention si brought to the ways that health, education and early childhood experiences interact to affect a child's opportunities: how having health coverage helps ensure children are healthy enough to attend school regularly, for example, or how a high school diploma impacts a young adult's chances at achieving economic security. The hope is that looking at these issues through this lens of interconnectedness will help policy makers, advocates and parents discover new ways to address the some of the troubling trends in child well-being detailed in this report.
