Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

ROC the Future has released its annual "State of Our Children" report card, which tracks key measures of wellbeing of children and youth in the Rochester area. This year's report identifies continued challenges, including chronic absences from schools, low literacy rates in third grade, and issues related to equity. It also lists areas that are improving, including parent engagement, high-quality pre-K services, and graduation rates.

Our guests break down the report and the group's action items. In studio:
