Family Connections – Falling Through the Cracks–Where We’re Failing America’s Kids and What You Can Do

Everyone agrees kids are important. Ted Lempert of Children Now and the Children’s Movement talks with us about the cracks in services to children, and how we’re failing to make sure all children have equitable and equal opportunities and access to early education, healthcare, and K-12 education. While budget issues are being debated in Congress as we speak, Ted says improving healthcare and early education for kids is not only a simple fix, it’s an affordable one! He also gives some great ideas for what you can do right now to advocate for kids in your state and on a national level.
