Marian Wright Edelman

Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children’s Defense Fund, devotes this week’s “Child Watch” column to “Whatever It Takes” and the Harlem Children’s Zone:

“Whatever it takes” is Canada’s philosophy about serving and saving the thousands of children in the nearly 100-block radius that constitutes the Harlem Children’s Zone Project. Canada’s comprehensive, innovative strategies for how to do this are at the heart of the book and have brought him national attention, including praise from President Obama, who is proposing plans to replicate Canada’s successes in 20 more communities across the country.
