The Early Childhood Community Council invites you to attend a film screening and public discussion about building strong developmental foundations for the children of Gallatin County.
The film screening and discussion will be held on Thursday, May 15, from 6:00-8:00pm, at Museum of the Rockies’ Hager Auditorium and is free and open to the public.

The evening will begin with a sneak-preview of Are We Crazy About Our Kids?, part of the “Raising of America” film series. The film will be followed by a community panel discussion with Lieutenant Governor Angela McLean, Bozeman Public Schools Superintendent Rob Watson and others. The discussion will be moderated by Bozeman Mayor Jeff Krauss.

Are We Crazy About Our Kids? explores how investing in high-quality early care and education pays for itself in many ways and many times over. The episode brings to life the critical studies of Nobel laureate James Heckman, Art Rolnick and others which highlight the choice of investing for success now or paying more for failure later.

An ambitious documentary series and Public Engagement Campaign by the producers of UNNATURAL CAUSES: Is Inequality Making Us Sick?, the “Raising of America” film series has not yet been released to the public. The series seeks to reframe the way we look at early child health and development, and illustrates how a strong start for all our kids leads not only to better individual life course outcomes (learning, earning, and physical and mental health), but also to a healthier, safer, better educated, more prosperous and equitable nation.
