UCAN Teen Report Card on Adults
Created and sponsored by the Uhlich Children's Advantage Network (UCAN) in Chicago, the Teen Report Card is an annual measure of adult progress on issues affecting teens, as graded by teens themselves. A representative sampling of 1,000 youth ages 12-19 are asked to grade adults in 22 key subjects, such as protecting teens from violence and abuse, terrorism, drinking, and drugs, to education, creating job opportunities, and spending time with their children. Teens are also asked what media most influence them in regard to world, national, and local events.
Teens receive the questions in the form of a mail survey, with the results weighted to reflect regional, ethnic, and gender distribution across the United States. CWLA's research division provides long-term trending analysis of the grades received by the adults. The report card grades and teen focus group recommendations are released at the close of the school year--the same time millions of our nation's youth are receiving their own report cards.
Through the Uhlich Report Card, UCAN and CWLA are giving a voice to America's youth, who desperately want to be heard and who have exceptional ideas and opinions about the issues affecting them.
