France, Bobigny: Children in primary school
Similar to sentinel site monitoring, it is possible to also monitor key inputs into the production of child wellbeing, notably those linked to the resources and policies of the public sector.

Thus, the use of such tools could influence policies—notably resource allocations—directly.
