Question description

State of America’s Children

In today’s global world, how do the children of the U.S. fare? Are  they prepared to compete in the international arena? The Children’s Defense  Fund (CDF) is a nonprofit child advocacy organization that provides a voice for  children who cannot speak for themselves. The State of America’s Children  2010 is the CDF’s report highlighting some crucial issues affecting our  children today. Visit the CDF Web site and read the report:

              Children’s Defense Fund (CDF). (2014). State of America’s  children 2014. Retrieved from http://www.childrensdefense.org/child-research-data-publications/state-of-americas-children/  

              Select a topic of interest to you from the report’s table of  contents (after pulling up the website, you can scroll down to select a topic).  Write a research paper on the topic. Be sure to include the following:

  • Present       the CDF findings on the topic in a table or graph that you create. Note       how different populations are affected. For example, you might compare       your state to national statistics or compare the top or bottom states on       the topic you chose, compare racial/ethnic group data, etc.
  • Research       the selected topics using at least one additional resource. The data and       research publication sections at the CDF Web site offer useful       publications.
  • Identify       and analyze the main issues and discuss them in the context of relevant       developmental theory, as well as societal influences. Why is this data and       the information you researched important to understand in the context of       child development?
  • Present       your conclusions and support them with research information. What       recommendations would you offer to address this issue for future       generations?

Write a 4-5 page research  paper in Word format. Be sure to include introductory and concluding paragraphs  in your paper, and a title page, an  abstract, and a reference page. Apply  APA standards to citation of sources. .
