At WNED on November 10 from 5 – 7 pm the Buffalo Promise Neighborhood, WNED, and RTSB are hosting a forum entitled ‘The Raising of America.’ The main topic is the importance of early childhood and the future of our nation. This is a national event, sponsored by the main policy group for Promise Neighborhoods, the Center for the Study of Social Policy. The documentary will be viewed in many different sites across the country. It illustrates how a strong start for all of our children leads not only to better individual life-course outcomes (learning, earning, and physical and mental health) but also to a healthier, safer, better educated, more prosperous and equitable nation. Please look at the attached generic flyer that gives a general description of the documentary and the event.
BPN’s program will include screening the film to an audience of at least 250, followed by a panel of experts who will respond to the issues, as well as answer questions from the audience. The discussion will fall into four main categories: the importance of early childhood education for future success, healthy child-healthy-mind-healthy family, parenting, and the development of public policies that will meet these needs.
