State of the Kid gives kids from all over the country a national platform to share their views on issues in the news.
This year’s survey asked kids questions such as: What is the most important quality in a President? What would you do if you were President? If everyone in the world would listen to you for one day, what would you say? How do you feel about differences in friendships?

Dr. Ribic, Meers, Inc. Consulting Psychologists
Dr. Julie Justice, Assoc. Professor of Literacy at UNC at Chapel Hill
