CFRP’s Screening of “The Raising of America” with Special Guest Dr. Libby Doggett

Why are so many children in America faring so poorly? What are the consequences for the nation’s future? How might we, as a nation, do better? The Raising of America series investigates these questions through different lenses: What does science tell us about the enduring importance of early life experiences on the brain and body? What it is like to be a parent today? And what policies and structures help or hinder the raising of healthy, happy and compassionate children?

The series’ newest episode, the Signature Hour (trailer below), covers all three of these issues. The Child and Family Research Partnership (CFRP), a policy research group directed by CHASP faculty Cynthia Osborne, is hosting the screening of this hour-long, powerful documentary and is honored to have special guest and friend, Dr. Libby Doggett, lead a discussion after the program. Dr. Doggett is the current Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Early Learning at the U.S. Department of Education and former Director of the Pew Home Visiting Campaign.
