The Raising of America

The Raising of America is a documentary series on early childhood that Rocky Mountain PBS broadcast in 2015 and early 2016. The documentary series and multimedia initiative explores how a strong start for all kids leads not only to better individual life course outcomes (learning, earning, physical and mental health) but also to a healthier, safer, better educated, more prosperous, more equitable America.

Rocky Mountain PBS News joins in conversations with Colorado experts on early childhood development as a follow-up to "Raising of America" episodes.

From the filmmakers at California Newsreel:

The Raising of America reframes the way we look at early child health and development. The documentary series and multimedia initiative explores how a strong start for all kids leads not only to better individual life course outcomes (learning, earning, physical and mental health) but also to a healthier, safer, better educated, more prosperous, more equitable America.

As a field, early care and education is an essential two-generation resource for state and local economies, yet is continuously plagued by high turnover rates, presenting a loss both for the business and for children.

These professionals allow families the opportunity to participate in the workforce and achieve self-sufficiency while also providing safe, learning-rich environments that lay the foundation for children’s school and life success. Read the report »
