ICYMI: Take care of your lead paint now; Michigan child care is a mess; lowering the bar for boys

Dustin Dwyer

We're coming up on October and you'll be forgiven if not only autumn, but State of Opportunity content, has been flying past you.

That's what we're here for. 

Last, but not least, what do you think about framing issues around kids labeled "at-risk" with a "pay now or pay later" construct? We trot out that reasoning all the time, as Jennifer Guerra points out. Does that argument resonate with you? 

Sound off in the comments or on the social networks. And get your questions ready: Next week we're running a State of Opportunity special where we'll spend the hour taking with and about disconnected youth – those teens and young adults who aren't in school or working.
