07/08 - Louisiana’s Children: A Future at Risk (Encore Edition)

How can the government improve the welfare of children in Louisiana?

When it comes to the future of a community or a state, nothing is more important than the welfare of the children - they are the future. By many indicators, Louisiana has not done well by its children. Find out why our state ranks 49th overall in child welfare issues on “Louisiana’s Children: A Future at Risk”. It’s an encore edition of Louisiana Public Square, featuring special guest Darryl McDaniel of Run DMC.

This program was also funded in part by the Louisiana Forestry Association
