Watch above and see how Dr. Pamela Cantor and Turnaround for Children are addressing that question, as part of NationSwell's Big Bets series. The idea for the series and the footage came out of New Profit’s Gathering of Leaders, a platform for cross-sector dialogue among social-entrepreneurs and leaders in philanthropy, business, media, government, and academia. In February, Gathering participants took on this question and pointed the way towards exciting possibilities.
