Help Them Learn, Help Them Grow

Aired 2004-05. Inner-city public school children are an educational challenge. Many may just be learning English, many from one-caregiver homes where individual attention is in short supply. These students can be at a real disadvantage. Some, a lucky few, are able to attend private religious schools where teacher-student ratios are more conducive to learning. Others take advantage of tutoring, computer training, immersion in the arts and other after-school activities provided by people of faith who volunteer their time. Help them learn, Help Them Grow showed what members of various faith communities are doing to offer help to students and schools in need. Help Them Learn, Help Them Grow aired on CBS stations and affiliates, June 27 through July 18, 2004.
