It's often said a society can be measured by how well it attends to its children - their health and safety, their material security, their education and socialization, and their sense of being loved and valued by their families and communities.  So how is it that children in the U.S. have worse outcomes on most measures of health, education and well-being than other rich nations? Why do we as a nation allow our most vulnerable children to fall so much further behind? How can we reduce what Paul Kershaw calls the squeeze on the generation raising young children - the squeeze for time, money and services - and help provide all our babies their best possible beginning? 

This revealing documentary provides a look at the science of early childhood development and how our nation went from supporting family-friendly policies 40 years ago, to today's "you're on your own" (YOYO) society.  The Raising of America explores how a strong start for all our kids can lead to a healthier, stronger and more equitable America.
