“The Elementary School Program has amazing potential to teach young children how culture and media influence their lives and how to make good life choices before they become exposed to or addicted to alcohol, tobacco and drugs, before they have become aggressive, victims of violence or desensitized to violence, before they blindly consume unhealthy foods and other goods… This program could make it easier for teachers to teach, parents to parent, kids to learn and be healthy and for community professionals to guide youth.”
