IL KC 2017 - Cover

Voices for Illinois Children’s Illinois Kids Count reports examine the quality of life facing children and families throughout the state.  Our 2017 report focuses on the education of our children. The data in this report tells a strong story about achievement and opportunity gaps. It also illustrates how we got here: by adults making choices to give some children less of what they need to be successful students. More often than not, we give low-income and minority students in Illinois less effective teachers, less experienced principals, a less rigorous curriculum, and fewer resources.
