About the lecture

When public attention turns to kids these days, the topic is usually K-12 education, and everything else that’s happening in the lives of children and youth gets SHORT SHRIFT. School matters, of course, but growing up is a journey fraught with a host of challenges.

From cradle to college and on to career, how should we invest in children?

This lecture advances a visionary ‘kids first’ policy agenda that’s guided by the golden rule: Every child deserves what’s good enough for a child you love.
