Children need more than just good schooling: they require safe lives, good health, and sufficient resources to live and grow successfully in their community. This book makes this vital connection, as society must promote a quality education, available health services, and financial equity and opportunity for all.

Editorial Reviews

"An important and timely analysis of how the trinity of health, education, and welfare is essential for every child's growth and development in today's world. The authors explore the disconnect in our policy-making and provide well-supported arguments for alternative community-based models that will improve the quality of life of our children and society at large." - Mary Riggs Cohen, PhD, author of Social Literacy"This book offers a compelling case that shows the generational interconnected effects of health, education, and income, and it provides guidelines for improving the well-being of children on all three fronts." - Edwin M. Bridges, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University
