Gardner answers his own call for strategic policies responsive to forces affecting children and families with a model for developing such a policy. He also discusses 15 roles that local governments can play, most of which require leadership rather than funding. After reviewing policy in the areas of education and school readiness, substance abuse, youth development, and family support programs, he makes predictions about issues that will affect cities and counties in the future.
