Healthy, happy kids grow up to create a healthy, happy world.

474: Back to School - This American Life (55 mins)

"As kids and teachers head back to school, we wanted to turn away from questions about politics and unions and money and all the regular school  stuff people argue about, and turn to something more optimistic — an emerging theory about what to teach kids, from Paul Tough's new book How Children Succeed."

Dr. Nadine Burke Harris is interviewed. Adverse childhood experiences, toxic stress, non-cognitive skills, attachment, home visits, etc. are covered.
