A new study by the Leauge of Women Voters wants to ensure that Oregon's at risk students are ready for school.

 

They just conducted a two year study called "Children at Risk --- Early Learning, Early Intervention."

 

Rebecca Gladstone with the League says they followed kids who are poor, may live in inadequate housing or have inadequate nutrition or have a parent with mental illness.

 

"We look at these kids and started looking how the state is providing services for them.  And the state just recenlty started to try to break down frustrating barriers to getting services.  And a number of organizations are working together now."

 

Organizations like the Oregon Early Learning Division within the Department of Education, the Oregon Health Authority and the Department of Human Services are trying to work together.

 

The state has 16 hubs throughout the state that plan to better coordinate services for Oregon's most at risk children.
