"Homeland Insecurity" A video from Every Child Matters

This video summarizes a new report form Every Child Matters. Did you know that a UNICEF ranking shows the US to trail in a sad position of 20th out of 21 rich democracies in child well being?

"The life chances of children are vastly improved when they are the top priority of supportive families and communities. But as the numbers in our report show, this happy ending eludes many millions of children, who are challenged by problems that should not exist in the world’s wealthiest nation—health care, child abuse, imprisonment, school readiness, afterschool care, and poverty. This report finds that new investments children's programs can make homeland security a reality for all children."
