One thought on “Life on the bottom rung: While imperfect, national rankings can help spur policy change

  1. I have long said that it is not true that we don’t know what to do, how to do it or that it costs too much! The impact of targeting problems with proven strategies as the article points out is essential to improved outcomes. And, improved outcomes are critical to knowing that solutions truly are in hand. With that, we can re-narrate the possibilities, inject hope and vision into social justice work. We need to genuinely believe that things can change; what once seemed impossible is now within reach. Arriving at that perspective is largely a matter of seeking and claiming our options from the tiniest task related choice to the sweeping budget and policy choices we make as a state. We must muster the knowledge and the political will to choose our children and our future. No more excuses.
