    • Abstract:
      The article discusses why the U.S. should ratify the Convention on the Rights of a Child (CRC), which was adopted by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in 1989. The author notes that the CRC has been ratified by 193 countries and that the U.S. played a major role in drafting the CRC. Topics include reasons for the U.S.' refusal to ratify the CRC, statistics related to child abuse and neglect, and how the CRC could make a difference in the lives of U.S. children.
