Diane Sawyer: Children of Poverty

I missed the special Friday night but thanks to the internet you can see Diane Sawyer's report on Eastern Kentucky here.

Diane is from Kentucky and as she states in the introduction for her show, she is very attached to this part of the country. Although many stories have been told about this area and although many have tried to make a difference (there are lots of educational initiatives, charities, programs) not much has really affected the culture of the area. It is particularly difficult to watch because as an educator, I know that education is the key. But for these people, living in a bubble of isolation makes it difficult to break away. It's an interesting story. I won't say "enjoy", but I will suggest you watch.
