Children today face different challenges than their parents did; school can sometimes be as dangerous a place as the streets. How can parents and caretakers keep their children safe from crime, drugs and gangs?

NPR's Tony Cox speaks with Marisol Sierra, a teacher at McKinley Park Elementary School in Chicago, about the work she's doing to help preschoolers adapt to the world around them.

We get a student perspective from Angela Bell — a tenth grader at City Honors Charter School in Inglewood, Calif. — and Ana Exiga, an eleventh grader at Jordan High School in Los Angeles.
