The United States in 2012 is at a crossroads about ways to ensure that all its people fuel progress in the 21st century. By creating partnerships across programs, policies, and systems that are now focused separately on children and parents, we can create an America in which a legacy of economic security and educational success passes from one generation to the next. We believe this vision shows a way forward. This report offers a framework for the ways in which new two-generation strategies can help parents, especially women, and children achieve their dreams together.
