The article looks at a report titled "Every Child, Every Promise: Turning Failure into Action," produced by the America's Promise Alliance. The report presents information gleaned from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, and three telephone surveys to which about 6,000 people, in total, responded. The types of support children need to do well in school and in life is the broad theme of the report.

More than two-thirds of American children ages 6 to 17 lack the sustained supports needed to put them on track for adult success, according to a report scheduled for release this week.

The study examines the presence of five sets of developmental resources in children's lives, based on three nationally representative telephone surveys of 12- to 17-year-olds, their parents, and the parents of children ages 6 to 11. In total, some 6,000 people responded.
