Connecticut can assure a better future for all children

As professionals who have dedicated our careers to promoting children’s health and well-being, we are mindful of the many factors that influence achievement. To narrow the achievement gap, we need to step back and look at all of the ways that we can support children’s health, development, and well-being and integrate and organize them so they work for families.
