On this week's edition of The State Journal's Decision Makers, host Bray Cary tackles issues affecting the future of children in West Virginia.

Bray sits down with Emily Chittenden-Laird, executive director of the West Virginia Child Advocacy Network. The two talk about curbing child abuse in the state.

Lloyd Jackson, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's appointee to the state Board of Education, tells Bray about the board's response to an audit of the state's education system.

Plus, Charleston Mayor Danny Jones and Huntington Mayor-Elect Steve Williams stop by to talk about the need to allow cities across the state more power over how they govern.
