Summary:
Our Children At Risk examines why millions of today's young children may fail to reach their full developmental potential and considers the positive steps the U.S. can take to address this crisis. The program features families with young children who are going hungry and foregoing necessary medical care as well as children whose development is threatened by the destructive forces of poverty. Child advocates explore cost effective ways to ensure that all children get off to a healthy start. Among the experts interviewed are Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, Harvard Medical School, and Marian Wright Edelman, the Children s Defense Fund. As Walter Cronkite concludes, "the cost of reaching these children may be daunting, but the cost of failing to reach our children at risk is more than our society can possibly afford.".
