Political Statement Or Educational Moment: Sesame Street Introduces A New Character

(Photo by Bryan Bedder/Getty Images)

Don’t get me wrong;  I wholeheartedly believe that television should have more shows like Sesame Street on the air, as opposed to some of the shows that pass as “children’s programming” these days.  Sesame Street has a long history of providing educational information to our children in their most-formative years.  From reading and spelling to arthimitic skills, the PBS show gives kids a head start on what they’ll learn in school.

Recently, Sesame Street introduced a new character – one that will help them inform our kids about hunger and poverty.  Historically, this isn’t the first time that they have delved into social issues.

Should Sesame Street teach our children about these types of social issues — or — is that the job of parents and family?

What do you think?
