Community data reports on the state of New Britain's youth
Since the 2008 release of the “Blueprint for New Britain’s Children,” there have been both negative and positive changes in New Britain.
The measurements of progress identified in the Blueprint are as relevant now as they were then. Are New Britain's children born at a healthy weight and to mothers who have completed their high school educations? Do children maintain a healthy weight in preschool and beyond? Are children academically and socially prepared for kindergarten? Are students reading at their appropriate grade level?
With the Coalition's focus now turned toward youth of a wider age range, we seek answers to questions regarding older children and young adults, in addition to retaining the questions above. Are students graduating from high school? Is the teen pregnancy rate dropping? Are our young adults going on to and graduating from college and/or successfully entering the workforce?
Many trends revealed by the data are, on the whole, encouraging. While much progress has been made, more progress is needed.
