As we continue to grapple with the pandemic's impact, it is crucial to understand how children have been affected.This year's FOCUS book explores outcomes associated with pandemic-related hardships and stress faced by Delaware children.
The 2023 FOCUS book addresses issues related to demographics, health, education, economic security, and family/community. With growing diversity within Delaware's child population, policies that focus on racial and ethnic equity are crucial to creating positive outcomes for all kids. The book emphasizes the importance of of addressing disparities in educational outcomes, highlights the need to provide financial assistance and social services to families, and reminds readers the importance of ensuring childhood safety.
The 2023 FOCUS book is an essential read for policymakers, educators, healthcare providers, and anyone interested in promoting the well-being of children during and beyond the pandemic.
