Synopsis by Sally Barber
Our Future Generation is a 26-part series featuring young people from diverse backgrounds who share their hopes, dreams, and everyday concerns. Topics touch on a multitude of issues ranging from pregnancy to prayer in the classroom. The series is written by teens with the aim of helping young people to understand their commonality. Our Future Generation: Teen Curfews explores the effectiveness and fairness of teen curfews. Across America, a growing number of cities are adopting teen curfew laws in hopes of deterring youth violence, crime, and gang activity. This program examines the success of such laws and addresses the question of whether government should have the power to restrict teen movement. Guests share experiences and provide insight as to exactly what young people think of curfews. Other programs in the series include Our Future Generation: Making the Transition from High School to College, Our Future Generation: How Does Music Influence Your Life?, Our Future Generation: Are All Teens the Same?, and Our Future Generation: Teens Looking for Positive Role Models.
