    I speak to audiences of teachers/librarians/educators fairly frequently, and one of the things I usually talk about is the great distance between the way this country talks about children ("Our greatest natural resource!" we say, pounding our chests) and the way we actually treat them. I often cite examples from Jonathon Kozol's chilling SAVAGE INEQUALITIES. The sad thing is, that book is over 15 years old now, and we don't seem to have made any progress.

    Our national hypocrisy regarding children is stunning.

    I'll certainly be citing this report in future presentations. Many thanks for directing it to our attention.
