2024 KIDS COUNT Data Book Released

Voices for Vermont’s Children has partnered with the Annie E. Casey Foundation to release the 2024 KIDS COUNT Data Book, a national and state-by-state project which presents national and state data from 16 indicators in four domains — economic well-being, education, health, and family and community factors — and ranks the states according to how children are faring.

Vermont ranks 4th in child well-being again this year.

This year’s report examines the unprecedented declines in student math and reading proficiency brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic's effect on education. The latest data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress reveals that between 2019 and 2022, fourth grade reading and eighth grade math scores plummeted, representing decades of lost progress. This alarming trend underscores the urgent need for action to address the growing academic disparities among U.S. students.

Read a full review of the report and the Vermont data from Voices for Vermont’s Children here.
