In your opinion, what are the two or three most important elements of an effective city effort to ensure that every child has opportunities to learn and grow? What programs, policies, or structures should every city or town should have in place if it wants to consider itself as doing a “very good job” in this area?

Do these elements or “benchmarks” change when thinking about a smaller community (e.g, with a population of less than 50,000 residents) rather than a larger city?
