Description
Program Description
"GROWING UP WITHOUT examines what life is like for poor children living in Washington State. The first portion of the one-hour program features documentary profiles of children in five families across Washington, as they describe their own lives. The production asks what personal price these children pay as they grow up in poverty and what social and economic price society will pay as these children become adults. Following the documentary portion of the program, host Leila Gorbman invites studio guests to comment about the possible fates of these children and what, if anything, can or should be done to help them. "This production merits Peabody consideration because it presents for the first time a comprehensive examination of the lives of children growing up in poverty in Washington State, and what that means for a society that has to support them if, as is likely, they remain dependent. GROWING UP WITHOUT also brings together for the first time the governor of Washington State, the director of the state's social services agency, and the mayor of the state's most populous city, along with legislatures, public officials and members of families on assistance, in a discussion of a vital social and economic issue."--1987 Peabody Awards entry form.
