Whose Child is This?


There is nothing pleasant about child abuse. WAVE-TV’s Alfred Shands, along with producer Rhoden Streeter has come to grips with the problem of how to translate a message of this importance through the medium of television. They have succeeded admirably well. Looking at the problem from the perspective of a second-grade teacher, Whose Child is This? gives viewers a highly realistic look at this problem and provides teachers and others in the educational system with insights of value and importance. For this meaningful presentation, a Peabody Award.
