The State of the States Report
If you want to know what a state believes, don't pay attention to the mission statement or legislative proclamations. Examine the budget. A budget is a statement of beliefs.
David Braddock and other researchers at the University of Colorado have been publishing their State of the States Report for years to help us to understand how each state is doing in its fiscal commitment to community supports. Find out how your state is doing at this great site.
