Summer learning loss

For many kids, school's out for the summer. But what does that mean for children in families of different income levels?

In this video, NBC news anchor Brian Williams lays out the summer learning loss that a child from a low-income family could experience, versus a middle-income child. More information about grade-level reading is available on the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading website.

Vintage films: Are you ready for marriage?

In this vintage family life education film, we get a perspective from 1950 on what couples were advised to consider in preparation for marriage. Watch as Sue and Larry go through "Cupid's Checklist."

Reuben Hill, former member of NCFR and a pioneer in the scholarly study of families, was an educational collaborator for this nearly 55-year-old film.
