Our Kids: An American Dream in Crisis
A central theme of American life – that all children should have a reasonable chance to live better than their parents – is no longer so true. Children have not fared well in an age of fragile families, educational challenges, drugs, crumbling communities, and disappearing jobs. We will read and discuss the title book by Robert Putnam, who examines why and how opportunities for upward mobility are diminishing and what can be done to restore them. We previously read Mr. Putnam’s, American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us. Please read chapter 1 of Our Kids for the first session.
