More than 800 North Carolinians representing every county in the state invested two days reviewing data, working together, and making tough decisions to answer this question. They were parents and business leaders, health care providers and elected officials, early childhood professionals and faith leaders, K-12 educators and workforce development experts.

They identified three key priorities for children in the state, concluding that all children needed to have:

  1. Basic needs met, such as food, shelter and health.

  2. Access to high quality early care and education.

  3. Involved and engaged parents and families who are supported through training and education opportunities.

Read the report to learn what North Carolinians and to say, and how they came to those conclusions.
