No child left behind?

International Children's Day was May 27? Did you miss it? In Cuba, they never forget:
"Our children are part of a society that listens to and counts on them, a society that they help build," said Keyla Estevez, the vice president of the Jose Marti Pioneers Organization.
International Children's Day is an outgrowth of something more significant, the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, which guarantees human rights to children. There are just two prominent non-signatories to the Convention. Of course you can guess who one of them is, right? Yes, the United States, naturally (the other is Somalia).
