Georgia ranks 40th overall in the Annie E. Casey Foundation's 2008 Kids Count Data Book, an annual study tracking ten indicators, including infant mortality, teen pregnancy and high-school dropout rates. Where has the state seen improvements and where are the biggest challenges?
Gaye Smith, executive director of Georgia Family Connection Partnership (GaFCP), and Taifa Butler, director of Policy and Communications, will share the latest statistics and some possible solutions to the problems on “Georgia Weekly,” Georgia Public Broadcasting’s public affairs series, this Sunday, Aug. 10, at 1 p.m.
The program will air again on Tuesday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m.
