    Marian Wright Edelman's La Columna Child Watch®: "Se celebra esta semana la cumbre nacional “De la Cuna a la Cárcel”"
    La mayor??a de los ni??os crecen en Estados Unidos escuchando en voz alta lo que sus padres sue??an y esperan para ellos en su futuro: el ??xito en la escuela, una carrera satisfactoria y una familia. Lamentablemente, no son los mismos sue??os y expectativas con que crecen muchos de los ni??os negros y latinos pobres.

Regrettably, those are not the dreams and expectations that many poor Black and Latino children grow up with. For too many of them, childhood means starting school not ready to learn, not reading at grade level, being pushed out or dropping out of school at younger and younger ages, then hanging out on the corner and getting a "street" education. This often leads to getting sucked into the pipeline to prison, which can best be described as a living nightmare..."

    Child Watch® Column: "The Cradle to Prison Pipeline: America's New Apartheid"
    "Incarceration is becoming the new American apartheid and poor children of color are the fodder. It is time to sound a loud alarm about this threat to American unity and community, act to stop the growing criminalization of children at younger and younger ages, and tackle the unjust treatment of minority youths and adults in the juvenile and adult criminal justice systems with urgency and persistence...."

    Child Watch® Column: "In This Election The Supreme Court Matters"
    "On the way to the voting booth on November 4, in addition to thinking about who should occupy the White House, we should also be concerned about who he will appoint to federal courts. The next President will likely name one to three Justices to the Supreme Court and hundreds to lower federal courts. I can't over-emphasize how important this is to America's children and future...."

    Child Watch® Column: "Eternity Isn't Forever"
