PBS Airing FRONTLINE Film “Poor Kids”

By | 2012-11-13T10:17:26+00:00 November 13th, 2012|Blog, Economic Security|


From PBS: In the film, FRONTLINE goes to the Quad Cities, a great American crossroads along the border of Iowa and Illinois, where the Mississippi River intersects Interstate 80 — an area deeply scarred by the Recession. FRONTLINE spent months following three young girls who are growing up against the backdrop of their families’ struggles against financial ruin. The result is an intimate portrait of the economic crisis as it’s rarely seen, through the eyes of children. At a time when one in five American kids lives below the poverty line, ‘Poor Kids’ is an unflinching and revealing exploration of what poverty means to children, and to the country’s future.

Watch Poor Kids Preview on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.

The film will air in Kentucky the following times:

Tuesday, November 20  —  10:00pm  53.2 – KET2

Wednesday, November 21  —  02:00am  53 – KET
