Once among the healthiest countries in the world, the United States is now ranked twenty-ninth. Those who bear the brunt of our worsening health are the poor, people of color, and, most of all, our children. All Children Are All Our Children situates our ongoing health crisis within the larger picture of inequality and the complex interplay of systems in the U.S. based on class, privilege, racism, sexism, and the ongoing tension between the ideals of democracy and the realities of corporate capitalism. Caught in the middle of those tensions is public education. All Children Are All Our Children defines what we mean by health, looking at the many factors that support or undermine it, and then identifies steps that can be taken locally in our schools and in our communities to support the health and well-being of our young people and their families, even as we work towards necessary change at the state and national policy level so that all children grow up healthy, happy, and successful–and not just some of them.

Pirate TV is a 58 minute weekly TV show that provides the book talk and lecture content for Free Speech TV. Pirate TV challenges the Media Blockade, bringing you independent voices, information and programming unavailable on the Corporate Sponsor-Ship. These posts are for YouTube and are usually longer than the broadcast versions. You will notice that I don't monetize my videos. I'm irritated by constant interruptions as I'm sure are you, and I would like to have a say over sponsorship.
