Keeping our Children Safe and Secure: Pandemic Flu and Emergency Preparedness

Cable in the Classroom is pleased to present via podcast [MP3, 54MB], the October 17, 2006 edition of the U.S. Department of Education's Education News Parents Can Use.

This episode focuses on what we can do now to prepare for an influenza pandemic—a global outbreak from a new strain of flu—that could have a dramatic impact on our nation’s communities, schools, and families.
