Is Children's Television Educational?

Is there a reasonable argument that children’s television educational? Or if it is not, how can children’s television be made educational?

  • It may also be of interest to explore the idea of: does children's television need to be educational - if so - to what degree does it need to be educational (What do you want children to learn)? Young children's shows are often educational, teaching various subjects such as math and the alphabet; however, with older children's and preteen television, this does shift. The programming seems to shift to situational and social problems that characters may face. Now does children learning from social situations provide them with a type of awareness valuable to their development or should more academics, such as, math and science be added? – Schmerica11 7 years ago
